Ligustrum vulgare, called common privet, European privet or wild privet, is a fast-growing, deciduous (semi-evergreen in mild winter climates) shrub that typically grows 10-15’ tall and as wide. It has good winter hardiness and formerly was the most popular species of privet grown for hedging in northern areas. Unfortunately, it is one of the least ornamental of the privets, and is now planted less frequently. Over time, it has escaped landscape plantings and naturalized in many parts of the U.S. and southern Canada. It features oval to lanceolate, dark green leaves (to 2.5” long) and small, tubular, white flowers in panicles (to 3” long). Flowers bloom at the stem tips in June. Flowers are very fragrant, but are considered by many to have a strong, unpleasant aroma. Flowers give way to globe-shaped, glossy drupes which ripen to black in fall and persist throughout winter. Fruit clusters are considered by some to be the best ornamental feature of this species.
Genus name comes from the Latin word for privet.
