Description

Northern Privet 

Northern Privet or Ligustrum Ovaliflium, as it is known botanically, is a shrub with shiny, green, turned-up leaves and white flowers.

This shrub blooms in June and July and is very attractive to butterflies. Northern Privet originated in Japan and South Korea. This shrub is a fast-growing and flowering shrub and is a member of the olive tree family. As a prominent shrub in your garden landscape, Northern Privet will add texture and greenery all year long. Growing your Northern Privet as a hedge will give a beautiful and lively appearance to your garden. Northern Privet is a less expensive alternative to traditional hedges and requires little care once established.

Care and Maintenance

Northern Privet will grow from10 to 15 feet high and wide. These plants enjoy fertile sandy loam soil and soil with consistent moisture that is well drained for maximum growth. Regular watering is crucial to provide maximum growth. Ensure that you plant your Northern Privet hedge away from other trees, so it is not blocked from the sun since it also requires full sun. Once established, you will only need to water your Northern Privet once a week with one inch of water.

Plant your Northern Privet in a row three feet apart from one another. As they grow, the plants will merge and create a thicker hedge-like appearance.

Pruning your Northern Privet hedges makes them grow thicker, so it is good to prune this hedge at least twice a year. Prune your Northern Privet hedges slightly thinner at the top and broader at the bottom to keep the hedge from growing too wide at the top while remaining narrow at the bottom to avoid losing leaves at its base.

Considerations

Northern Privet hedges are a perfect solution to bare landscape issues. This hedge will add a continuous green garden look making your garden sanctuary appear fresh and lively. Since many butterflies are attracted to the Northern Privet, ensure it is planted where you can enjoy privacy while watching butterflies all spring and summer.

Northern Privet is now available for sale at TN Nursery at a low price and fast shipping.
