The Jack Frost Privet is a bright and cheerful evergreen shrub, with variegated leaves in light-green and pale ivory. Each leaf has an irregular margin of white, and the glossy leaves sparkle and shine light around your garden. It grows at a moderate rate of 6 to 10 inches a year, and only reaches about 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide, so for making screens and hedges that aren’t just boring green, look no further than this great plant. Use it for informal screening, with just an occasional trim, or turn it into a precision hedge or detailed topiary bush. Save your time for your flowers, and fill the background of your garden with color, by planting this fabulous plant in your garden.

  • Vibrant white and green variegated evergreen
  • Ideal way to add color without adding garden work
  • Moderate growth rate for easier maintenance
  • Very tough and easy to grow
  • Pest free, disease free, and deer resistant

The Jack Frost Privet will grow from zone 6 to zone 10, in almost any kind of soil that is not constantly flooded. Plant between 2½ and 4 feet apart for screens and hedges, or use it in the background of your garden, to brighten everything up. It grows well in both sun and partial shade, pests and diseases don’t bother it, it is salt-resistant, and even deer usually leave it alone. For easy gardening, without growing boring plain green plants, this is the shrub you want.
