The Q&A Archives: Ligustrum Waxleaf

Question: I'm not sure if these are shrubs or trees. How close together should they be planted? I know they grow up to 15ft high but I'm not sure how wide they get. Please advise.

Answer: Traci,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

They are shrubs that can grow into small trees! I find they usually get about 10 feet wide in time if left unpruned but you can keep them smaller or more narrow with pruning.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
