Golden Vicary Privet is a fast-growing shrub with bright yellow foliage growing between 8 and 10 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide. However, it takes pruning well and can be maintained at a smaller size. In the fall, its foliage turns a purplish color. It blooms pretty white flowers in late spring, followed by small black berries.
This plant works well as a hedge or an accent plant. It has the best color in full sun but tolerates light shade, and it will handle a wide variety of soil.
