California Privet Is Great For Privacy Hedge
California privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) is a popular ornamental shrub native to Japan and Korea. It is a fast-growing, hardy plant that can reach heights of up to 15 feet (4.5 meters).
The plant is famous for its attractive, glossy, oval-shaped leaves, about 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) long. It produces small, fragrant, white flowers in the summer and small, black berries in the Fall (End of October).
California privet is often used for hedges or screens, as it can be easily pruned and trained to a desired shape. It is also tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, including sun or shade and various soil types.
How And Where To Plant California Privet
California privet can be grown in various conditions, including full sun or partial shade, and in different soil types. It prefers well-draining soil and moderate water but can tolerate drought once established.
California privet is hardy in USDA zones 5 to 8, which includes most of the United States except for the coldest and warmest regions. It can generally be grown in areas with a mild to moderate climate.
If you plan to grow California privet as a hedge or screen, it is important to space the plants appropriately to allow for adequate air circulation and growth. A spacing of about 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 meters) between plants is recommended for a dense hedge.
