Description

Non-invasive golden Vicary privet!

Enjoy all the fragrance and color of gold privet without the problems of the old invasive standy-by. Dr. Thomas Ranney of NCSU developed Golden Ticket® privet by making a wide interspecific cross that resulted in this compact, colorful, eco-friendly flowering shrub. It provides durable season-long color for landscapes, and has fragrant late spring flowers.
