Ligustrum vulgare, commonly known as Wild Privet, is semi-evergreen and particularly wildlife-friendly. Its bushy habit creates a great nesting site for wild birds and although some may find the scent of its white flowers unpleasant, bees and butterflies love them.

  • Best Features: white flowers, semi-evergreen foliage, black berries, wildlife-friendly
  • Ideal For Hedges: 1-4m
  • Growth Rate: Average | 20-40cm
  • Position: Sunny, partial shade, moist to normal soil, sheltered or exposed, inland or coastal
  • Also Consider: Common Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) or our Laurel Hedging range

*Please note, 1 bare root = 1 Wild Privet plant, not a bundle of plants. We use a mixture of bare root photos taken in leaf from our growing sites in summer, as well as during the bare root planting season when Wild Privet may be defoliated.
