Privet has long been favored for hedges and screening off air conditioners and other outdoor eye sores. It forms a dense, leafy wall that creates lots of privacy, and clusters of white flowers perfume the air in summer. Golden Ticket® is the first non-invasive privet – it has all of privet’s good qualities, and none of the bad ones. High quality, glossy foliage emerges bright yellow and ages to chartreuse. Very adaptable and easy to grow, this deer-resistant shrub is the smart choice for hedging, screening, and landscaping.
