    A non-invasive Golden Vicary privet!

    Privet has long been favored for hedges and screening off air conditioners and other outdoor eye sores. It forms a dense, leafy wall that creates lots of privacy, and clusters of white flowers perfume the air in summer. Unfortunately, the privet that's been used for decades is invasive, making a nuisance of itself in your yard and spreading to natural areas. Golden Ticket® is the first non-invasive privet - it has all of privet's good qualities, and none of the bad ones. High quality, glossy foliage emerges bright yellow and ages to chartreuse. Very adaptable and easy to grow, this deer-resistant shrub is the smart choice for hedging, screening, and landscaping.

    Top three reasons to grow Golden Ticket® privet:

    • Non-invasive - won't spread 
    • Bright, glossy gold foliage
    • very adaptable, doing well in dry soil and part shade.

    Uses Notes: 

    A durable, easy-to-grow plant that is ideal for low-maintenance hedges. PLEASE NOTE: Golden Ticket® Privet is restricted and cannot be shipped to the state(s) of ME.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Adaptable to most soils. Foliage color will be best in full sun. Does not need heavy pruning, but will tolerate it if tight, formal shapes are desired. Prune to shape after flowering. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in early spring.

    Fun Facts: 

    Though it is relatively humble in the landscape, the neat, clean foliage makes an excellent filler in floral arrangements.
