Ligustrum vulgare, commonly known as common privet, can be an excellent choice for creating a hedge due to its dense growth habit and suitability for regular pruning. Producing small, tubular, white flowers that are borne in clusters, or panicles, in late spring to early summer, the flowers are often fragrant and attract pollinators like bees. After flowering, common privet produces small, black berries that ripen in late summer to early fall.

Using bareroot specimens is a cost-effective alternative to pot grown plants and allows the plants to establish their root systems before the growing season starts.

This is a BARE ROOT plant which can be planted during dormant months, usually November until March. Dispatch date varies from year to year as plant can only be lifted when dormant. This plant has exposed roots and must be planted once received.
