Ligustrum Japonicum Pleached Trees
Ligustrum Japonicum, or Japanese Privet as it is more commonly known, is a beautiful oriental evergreen tree. The dense, glossy, dark green leaves offer multiple seasons of interest, which makes this tree a popular choice for evergreen screening. These particular specimens have been grown and shaped as Pleached Trees, that is trained on clear stems (like stilts) with the crown cut and trained into a square box shape, eventually developing into a striking cube shape.
Our Ligustrum Japonicum Pleached trees are particularly in demand, with the year-round lush foliage offering privacy and adding a structural dimension to the garden. Additionally, pleached trees do not require so much space. A Japanese Privet Pleached tree is much more manageable in terms of the lateral space it takes up in the garden, so it is a great candidate for small or urban city gardens.
Height and Spread of Ligustrum Japonicum Pleached Trees
Our pleached Japanese Privets currently stand at 4 to 4.25 metres. The trunk height is 2.6 metres, whereas the frame for the crown is 1.5 metres x 1.5 metres.
How Hardy is Ligustrum Japonicum Pleached
Japanese Privet is fully hardy in the United Kingdom. This cultivar is evergreen in areas where winters are milder, and will only lose part of foliage if winters are particularly severe.
How To Use Japanese Privet Pleached Trees
The pleached-trained form of the Japanese Privet tree lends itself perfectly to stilted hedging and above fence evergreen screening. In spaces where privacy is needed, this is a fantastic solution, as the dense foliage held high above the head will offer seclusion with an elegant appeal.
The raised square crowns of the Ligustrum Japonicum pleached tree are not only ideal for screening and hedging purposes. The distinct look offers structural value and introduces year-round interest to the garden. Both small and large spaces can use pleached trees as a focus of interest in the landscape.
How To Care for Ligustrum Japonicum Pleached
Japanese Privet pleached tree is easy to care for. Grow in a spot in full sun or partial shade, and in well-drained soil. Once fully established, these cultivars are drought-tolerant. As for its trained form, it is also fairly undemanding in terms of maintenance. An occasional trim to control foliage is all it takes for Ligustrum Japonicum pleached tree to look its best.
In addition to the Ligustrum Japonicum pleached trees, we also sell Ligustrum Japonicum in full standard shape. The natural growth habit of this tree, with its tall elegant trunk, makes it ideal for stilted hedging and above the fence line screening. However, if you prefer the more architectural, geometrical appearance, Japanese Privet in Pleached form is probably the better choice.
