North Privet (Ligustrum x ibolium) is a quick growing shrub that forms a dense green hedge in no time. Whether you are looking for a formal geometric hedge or an informal free form hedge, screen or border, North Privet will fit the bill. Used for ages as a hedge, this handsome shrub won’t disappoint. Even though it will quickly reach 8 – 12 feet (sometimes growing as fast as 3 feet per year!), North Privet is easily trimmed to whatever height you need to block that unsightly view. As a matter of fact, the more you prune the denser and bushier this shrub gets. Even though North Privet is grown primarily for its thick foliage, it also features small, fragrant white flowers in late spring that attract bees and butterflies. Once the flowers fade, they are replaced by small bluish black berries that birds love. Once established North Privet is drought tolerant, too.
