Privet is a very strong hedge species and is suitable for low hedges from about 50cm high to tall hedges. As long as the soil is loose, privet will actually grow anywhere. Ligustrum ovalifolium flowers in early summer with beautiful white flowers that also give off a wonderful fragrance. If the hedge is pruned regularly, not many flowers will appear on this garden plant. If you want to enjoy these flowers, wait with the first pruning until after the Ligustrum ovalifolium has flowered.
What is Ligustrum ovalifolium suitable for?
The privet is one of the fastest growing hedge plants of all. Its densely branched and upright growth are ideal characteristics for an opaque hedge. The frost-hardy evergreen or semi-evergreen privet hedge is fast growing with an average growth of 40cm per year. Ligustrum Ovalifolium is very tolerant of pruning and can therefore be easily kept at the desired height. It retains most of its oval, glossy foliage in mild winters until new leaves form in spring. Even if the winter foliage turns a little brown and gradually falls off, this exceptionally frost-hardy privet still provides excellent privacy protection, even throughout the winter.
