The Sunshine Privet is a beautiful evergreen shrub with leaves that are solid gold colored, all year round. It is a modest grower, never passing 6 feet tall, and spreading 3 or 4 feet wide, so it can be used for an unclipped screen, a clipped hedge from low to tall, or as specimens among shrubs. No matter how you use it in your garden, you will love the glowing gold coloring, and how it brightens and frames your garden like nothing else can do. Run a low hedge along a path or driveway, or a taller one to create a boundary for your garden. Plant them among evergreens around your home for brightness and interest without adding work. It never flowers, and so it can’t make seeds, so it neither triggers allergies or invade natural areas – a perfectly safe privet to grow anywhere.

  • Glowing bush of pure solid gold brings light and beauty
  • Create easy and spectacular hedges and specimens
  • No flowers or seeds, so no allergies or invading seedlings
  • Vigorous but moderate growth, so not much clipping needed
  • Under 6 feet tall, so no need to trim at all, if you don’t want too

Plant the Sunshine Privet in full sun for the brightest gold coloring. In partial shade it will still grow well, but the summer foliage will be more of a fashionable lime-green. It grows everywhere from zone 6 to zone 10, and in all soils, including heavy clays and difficult soil conditions. Only avoid planting in soil that is constantly saturated with water. Once established it is very drought resistant, and since it has naturally dense branching it doesn’t even need trimming to look great, and to stay compact and neat. If you do want to trim, once or twice a year is all it takes. It is free of pests and diseases, and to add all year brighten to your garden, this is the #1 pick.
