Privet Hedge - Ligustrum ovalifolium
Green garden privet is a quick growing, popular semi-evergreen hedge plant. Fast growing Green Privet is the most popular plant for hedging and can be seen almost everywhere in housing schemes, and even in towns. It has small, glossy green, oval leaves, and profuse white flowers followed by black berries that birds love. Privet may experience some leaf fall during winter which explains classification of semi-evergreen but once established will retain most leaves. Privet hedges are a good alternative to Leylandii conifer hedge plants as it is easier to maintain.
Privet hedges should be pruned a few times a year during the growing season to maintain its shape and regrowth
