Welcome to ShrubBucket!
California privet is a large shrub with dense, semi erect stems that can reach up to 15' high. It is one of the tried and true hedging plants with its uncanny ability to be trimmed and shaped into any formal or informal form and it even performs admirably in moist, partially shaded areas. Its steady growth and semi-evergreen dark, deep green leaves add to its allure as a backdrop or privacy screen. Large 2-4" clusters of white, strongly fragrant flowers are produced in June and July followed by shiny black fruits that attract area songbirds. Like all Privet, California Privet thrives on neglect and is very tolerant. If using it as a hedge, be sure to install individual plants 12-15" apart for the quickest cover and thickness.
