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.
