Ligustrum Vs. Mexican Silktassel

1 02 2011

Ok, at recent volunteer workdays, some of our new volunteers have gotten a bit confused between Ligustrum (it must die) and Mexican Silktassel (nice native shrub)  For the record, Ligustrum has a pointed leaf while Silktassel is rounded on the end.  Here’s a few photos:

Ligustrum - pointed leaves (bad!)

Silktassel (rounded leaves) - good!

Hope that clears it up for you.  If in doubt, come volunteer with us at Barton Creek – Spyglass Access on Sat, Feb 12th from 9 am to noon.  Register here.
