Privet


Ligustrum selections

Privet

Choose this fast-growing, glossy-leaf plant to form a handsome hedge or screen in warmer climates. Its foliage shows a hint of red, and the sweet-scented, spiky flowers are a highlight in summer, followed by black berries in fall. Plant variegated or gold varieties in full sun for the best color show. Privet requires a well-drained soil to prevent root rots. Shear privet hedges twice a season.
