Ligustrum sinense 'Variegatum' (Variegated privet)

Post  Poink88 on Wed Jul 11, 2012 1:26 am

Does Ligustrum sinense 'Variegatum' (Variegated privet) make good bonsai?

I have an opportunity to get a couple for free today but not sure if it is worth the trouble.

Thanks!

Larger leaves, might reduce, but variegated plants are usually less vigorous than the all green. It might be worth trying one or two if the price is right/free.

Thanks Billy, These have the smaller leaves (3/4" or so) and yes the price is right (free) just need to put some sweat equity on collecting it.

I wouldn't put out much effort, it is really the wrong time of year and the success rate will be close to/or 0%.
