Pruning: The Variegated Ligustrum generally does not require regular pruning, as it naturally maintains its compact and attractive shape. However, if desired, light pruning can be done in early spring to shape the plant or remove any dead or crossing branches.

Fertilization: Fertilize the Variegated Ligustrum in early spring with a balanced slow-release fertilizer. Use a granular fertilizer formulated for shrubs and follow the recommended application rates. This will provide the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and vibrant foliage.

Winter Protection: In zones 5-10, where winter temperatures can be cold, ensure proper winter protection for the Variegated Ligustrum. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to insulate the roots and protect them from freezing temperatures. Consider using burlap or protective covers during periods of extreme cold.


To ensure successful planting of the Variegated 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 for improved drainage and fertility. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, gently place the shrub in the hole, and ensure that 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 and add a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture and suppress weed growth. Whether planted in a pot or in the ground, the Variegated Ligustrum will thrive with proper care.

The Variegated Ligustrum thrives in well-drained soil and requires regular watering, particularly during dry periods. Water deeply once or twice a week, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. This shrub performs best 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 variegated foliage color and overall vitality.
