Why Buy Privet Shrubs Online?

Ligustrum is a genus of about 50 deciduous or evergreen shrubs. Also commonly known as privet, which is a species of ligustrum. These are mostly grown into large hedges due to the ability to prune these plants into almost any shape. These are native to Europe, North Africa, Asia and are sometimes considered invasive depending on the location. These plants thrive in heat and humidity, making them a popular plant in southern states.

The Best Way To Use Privet

The ligustrum and privet we offer are winter hardy in growing zones 6 to 11. The plants can grow from 3 to 10 feet tall and wide, with a mounded growth habit. The plants prefer well drained soil, but can handle most conditions and these plants are very low maintenance once established. The shrubs thrive in locations with full sun, but can also grow in partial shade conditions.

Most gardeners in southern states use these shrubs as hedges. But these can also be grown in mass plantings, in planters, or as a garden border.

Landscaping Tip: Privet got its name because it is so widely used to provide privacy around homes, particularly from the street. It can be trimmed into a formal shape or allowed to stay natural, depending on the look you are going for. If trimming, plan to do so in late spring, after the new growth has emerged.
