Green privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) instant hedging, is the most ubiquitous privet being seen in hedges all over the country. It is also known as the oval leafed Privet. It was introduced from Japan in 1885 and is suitable for growing in a wide range of conditons and locations. In the colder areas it will lose its leaves. If left untrimmed it will produce a white flower head followed by a black berry but if it is kept trimmed it will be very unusual to see them. With regular trimming at least 3 times per year you will get a very tight and smart hedge. If trimmed with the top slightly narrower than the base the Green privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) instant hedging will keep leaves all the way to the ground.
