FOR PLEACHED TREES
Pleached Japanese Privet Tree Variegated (Ligustrum Japonicum Variegatum) - evergreen trees in pleached form for stilted hedging and screening. Ligustrum Japonicum Variegatum is the variegated form of the well-loved evergreen Japanese Privet Tree with green and cream foliage. Also known as Variegated Japanese Privet, in its pleached form, this variety boasts a raised square crown above a clear-stem trunk of 80cm. The leaves are bright green with cream margins, and they will stay on the tree throughout the seasons. Variegated Japanese Privet produces panicles of white flowers in late summer followed by dark berries. This is a compact tree with dense-growing foliage, making it well-suited to evergreen screening.

Pleached trees with their long clear stems are highly distinctive. They are often used both as evergreen screening in the form of a pleached hedge above the fence line. To achieve the recognisable square shape of the tree’s crown, it takes much pruning and training. At Paramount Plants and Gardens, we use bamboo training frames for best results. Privet stilted hedging or above fence screening is an excellent choice for both small and large gardens, as it can help create a boundary without taking up much lateral space in the garden.
Height and Spread of Pleached Ligustrum Japonicum Variegated One of the most appealing qualities of pleached trees is that they are much more manageable size-wise. Our Pleached Variegated Privet Tree is 2 metres high, and its crown is trained on a frame 1.2 metres wide and 80 centimetres high. As mentioned, its clear stem is 80cm tall.
How Hardy is Pleached Ligustrum Japonicum Variegated Ligustrum japonicum Variegatum is fully hardy in the United Kingdom.
How To Use Pleached Variegated Privet Tree The foliage offers year-round visual interest and the architectural form of the Pleached Variegated Privet Tree introduces structure into the landscape. Use it to line pathways, increase the height (and the ornamental value!) of the privacy your garden wall offers or to create an overhead privacy screen on a rooftop garden or balcony.
How To Care for Pleached Variegated Privet Tree Undemanding and robust, this Japanese Privet will do well in most average soils, in full sun to dappled shade. If required, trim in late winter to maintain the form of the pleached tree.
