Privet Hedge, also known as Ligustrum amurense, is a type of deciduous shrub.
It is erect, dense, fast-growing, and multi-stemmed. It is native to northern China and can grow up to 12 to 15 feet long and 8 to 15 feet wide. It is used to hedge and naturalize settings. It is also used to create thick shrub borders. This plant grows best in full sun but also grows in partial sun and partial shade. Privet hedge has conspicuous and fragrant flowers and conspicuous fruits. It requires minimal to medium amounts of watering and medium amounts of maintenance. It tolerates well-drained soils that have little to medium amounts of moisture. It is not tolerant of soils that have a great deal of moisture. This type of plant responds positively to pruning. It requires minimal amounts of pruning and can be pruned during the spring after it flowers. The hedges, however, can be pruned right before flowering and even during the summer so that the plant is well-shaped and produces dense branches.
This privet hedge self-seeds in high-quality conditions and will form thickets in plots of land where its growth is not controlled.
Note that privet hedge is tolerant of urban conditions and drought. Concerning its features, this plant has elliptic to oblong leaves that bear a dull green color and have hair situated on the underside midrib section. The plant also yields creamy white flowers that bloom from May to June. These white flowers have an aroma that may be considered unappealing, so they can be sheared off if need be. These white flowers also yield black drupes that ripen during the fall.
