California Privet began as a species native to Japan and is now commonly found in the US
It is winter hardy in USDA zones five through eight. As a fast-growing shrub, it can be used as a border around a yard, as an accent piece near a home or building, and as a plant that brings color to the yard during the summer. When mature, California privet can be 10 to 15 feet tall. Some gardeners let their shrubs flourish naturally, whereas others may trim them occasionally during the growing season to get the desired shape. Frequent trimming may result in seasons without flowers, which for some, may be ideal. The small leaves, which are approximately 2.5 inches wide, are dark green on top and a greenish-yellow on the underside. In the fall, the foliage can turn to yellow. During the summer, the shrub produces white flowers that have a strong fragrance. Those flowers are typically clustered tightly in 4" panicles. After the flowers drop, fruits remain.
California Privet has fruits that are small and black with purple undertones
People cannot eat fruits, but birds can. Small birds are often seen and heard in the bushes during the summer. California privet is typically shipped to customers as bare root plants. These plants prefer well-drained soil, and they are very tolerant of different soil types. They can live in clay, loam, and sandy soils, and they have been known to thrive in conditions ranging from full to partial sun. This versatility has allowed them to have a wide-spread presence across the United States. These semi-evergreen shrubs are quick to establish themselves in a yard. They're capable of growing up to 36 inches in a season, and at the same time, they can spread out significantly as well.
