is an ornamental shrub that is one of America's fastest-growing hedge producing shrubs

North privet is commonly used in landscape design eliminating the need for a fence. The North privet is an exceptionally fast growing deciduous shrub; it grows around two feet in height each year. Sometimes the north privet can grow up to three feet a year when appropriately shared. There is no specific trimming schedule to follow when cleaving the north privet. It will maintain its natural shape if shared a few times a year. It prefers no less than 4 hours of unfiltered, direct sunlight each day. The northern privet does best in partial shade to full sun.

Northern Privet grows well in most soil conditions

It can tolerate well-drained, acidic, alkaline, sandy, silty loam, loamy, moist and fertile soils conditions. Once it is established, it can become drought tolerant. The foliage of the northern privet is a glossy dark green color. It is a semi-evergreen shrub. It grows pyramidal and provides a privacy screen. When sheared often it will develop thick layers of branches.

Northern Privet features fragrant white small flowers that bloom in the early spring

These flowers usually attract butterflies. One the flowers fade the northern privet then produces a dark blue colored berry that attracts birds. These droops typically form in the late summer to early fall and can remain on the privet through the winter months to provide food for birds and other small animals. Northern Privet is a great plant.
