Pruning: The Sunshine Ligustrum requires minimal pruning to maintain its desired shape and size. Light pruning can be done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches. This will help promote healthy growth and maintain its attractive form.

Fertilization: Fertilize the Sunshine Ligustrum in early spring with a balanced slow-release fertilizer. Choose a fertilizer formulated for shrubs and follow the package instructions for application rates. This will provide the necessary nutrients to support vigorous growth and vibrant foliage.

Winter Protection: In zones 5-10, where temperatures can drop significantly, provide winter protection for the Sunshine Ligustrum. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant, extending it to cover the root zone. This will help insulate the roots and protect them from freezing temperatures. Additionally, consider wrapping the shrub with burlap or using frost blankets during periods of extreme cold.


To plant the Sunshine Ligustrum, select a location in your garden that receives full sun to partial shade. Prepare the planting area by loosening the soil and incorporating organic matter to improve drainage and provide essential nutrients. Dig a hole that is slightly wider and at the same depth as the root ball. Gently remove the shrub from its container and place it in the hole, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Backfill the hole with soil, firming it gently around the roots. Water thoroughly after planting to settle the soil and promote root establishment. Whether planted in a pot or in the ground, the Sunshine Ligustrum will thrive with proper care.

The Sunshine Ligustrum thrives in well-drained soil and requires regular watering, particularly during the establishment period. Water deeply once or twice a week, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Once established, it is moderately drought-tolerant but will benefit from regular watering during dry spells. This shrub flourishes in full sun to partial shade, receiving at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day. While it can tolerate some shade, ample sunlight exposure will enhance its vibrant foliage color and overall vitality.
