Why plant Howardi Golden Japanese Privet?

When told to consider the Howardi Golden Privet, no time should be wasted. This shrub contributes an amazing evolution of color. The new growth shines brightly with a lemony hue, as the foliage ages, the color morphs turning to a lime green. Adaptability is the name of the game, as this shrub is able to be planted in a white range of soils. These shrubs are relatively easy to grow; offering tolerance to deer, drought, pests, and most diseases!

How to use Howardi Golden Japanese Privet in the landscape?

Want to add color to dull empty landscapes, well, we definitely have the plant for you! The Howardi Golden Privet explodes with color no matter where it's placed. This shrub does perfectly in mass plantings, or used as a privacy hedge. Another wonderful ability of the Howardi Golden Privet is its ability to be pruned into any topiary shape. We also refuse to overlook its ability to thrive in container planting, opening up a world of possibilities for even the smallest of properties!

How To Plant Howardi Golden Japanese Privet

Growing to its full potential in full sun, the Howardi is capable of handling some shade without issue. This plant offers adaptability when considering soil, allowing it to survive in most soil types while avoiding standing water, which may damage the roots.

How To Water

Watering should be done at least once a week, especially when first planted, to ensure a healthy growth habit and root system. Once established, although drought tolerant, it is always beneficial to do some mild watering to any plant. We recommend watching your local weather during hotter dry months and water accordingly.

How To Fertilize

The Howardi Golden Privet, like most plants, do enjoy a healthy feeding of fertilizer! We recommend doing so in either early spring or late fall, when you notice no new growth coming forth. We offer our Elements Starter Plant Food to meet all your fertilizer needs!

How To Prune

Howardi Golden Privet is capable of enduring a pruning throughout the year, but we recommend doing so in late winter to early spring, before the push of new growth as to not hinder its growing ability for that upcoming season.
