More Details

The Waxleaf Privet Hedge, scientifically known as Ligustrum japonicum 'Texanum', is a popular evergreen shrub widely used for its dense, glossy foliage and versatility in the landscape. This cultivar of Japanese Privet is particularly noted for its ability to form thick, lush hedges and screens, providing excellent privacy and wind protection. Waxleaf Privet features clusters of fragrant white flowers in spring, followed by small, black berries that attract birds. Its compact growth habit and ease of maintenance, including tolerance to pruning and shaping, make it an ideal choice for formal gardens, borders, or as a foundational planting. Adaptable to a range of conditions, the Waxleaf Privet is a reliable and attractive option for gardeners seeking year-round greenery.

Growth rate: Fast growth rate; mature height of 6-8 feet and width of 4-6 feet, but can be pruned to desired size and shape.

Pruning: Responds well to pruning and can be shaped into formal hedges or topiaries. Prune in late winter to early spring to maintain desired size and density.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth and flowering.

Pest Management: Monitor for pests such as scale and treat as necessary to maintain plant health.


Choose a location with well-draining soil in full sun to partial shade. Dig a hole twice as wide and the same depth as the root ball. Plant the privet, backfill with soil, and water thoroughly. For a dense hedge, space plants 3-4 feet apart.

Waxleaf Privet Hedges benefit from regular watering during their establishment phase and thrive in full sun to partial shade. Reduce watering frequency once established, as it is relatively drought-tolerant. Performs best in full sun but can tolerate partial shade, which may result in a less dense growth habit. They are an excellent choice for gardeners looking for an easy-to-maintain hedge that offers privacy and year-round interest.
