Wild Privet (Ligustrum vulgare) is a semi-evergreen, fast growing, dense hedge with medium sized leaves and clusters of creamy-white flowers in July, attractive to insects. Shade tolerant. An asset to wildlife with the flowers in July and long bunches of shining black fruits in winter, attractive to birds. In cold winters it will lose its leaves. Less formal and with larger, duller leaves than Oval Leaf Privet.
