MUSLI ® was discovered and selected as a seedling of Ligustrum ibota in Switzerland.
Leaves are opposite, evergreen to semi-evergreen and remarkable for their lasting variegation, highly resistant to the sun. The young shoots are light yellow, turning white with time. The foliage is more or less variegated, light grey-green with creamy white edges, sometimes so wide that they cover the entire width of the leaf.
When young, the shrub is of bushy and spreading growth with arching branches. Then MUSLI ® forms an even bush with a dense centre. It is of moderate growth.
In early summer, the shrub will produce clusters of fragrant white tubular, nectar bearing flowers, turning into blue-black berries, which attract the birds.
This shrub tolerates cutting back and is suitable in topiary, in a monospecific or a mixed hedge.
Together with other shrubs or in a pot is is very remarkable by its particularoy bright foliage.
It tolerates pruning and allows the creation of various shapes.
