Design Ideas: Privet are primarily mild-winter hedge plants. This cultivar doesn't exceed four feet tall, so you can plant it as a natural hedge and never need to clip it. Too small for screening but perfect for foundation planting against buildings, walls and fences. With its lush green foliage, it's perfect for formal gardens as a hedge or sheared into a casual cone or ball as a single specimen. Ideal background greenery for perennial and flowering shrub beds.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.


The berries produced by Ligustrum have a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine.
