Northern Privet is a fast-growing, evergreen hedge that will thrive in U.S.D.A. plant hardiness zones 4 to 9 in a mix of sun and shade. It can also tolerate the full sun; however, water demands will increase accordingly.
When customers ask Wholesale Nursery Co. for advice on the best hedge for fast growth, we often recommend this species. That's because it grows about two feet in every direction per year.
Gardeners love Northern Privet
The shrub can achieve a mature size of up to twelve to fifteen feet high and eight to ten feet wide. However, they are highly tolerant of pruning, allowing the gardener to keep them at a lower height if desired.
Here are some ways that Wholesale Nursery Co. customers use the shrub to beautify their properties:
- Border planting: Use it as a garden border. Let it grow to a taller height in the back, or trim it lower for the middle row.
- Delineate boundaries: Distinguish your property lines with a hedge--keep it low, trim, and ornamental or taller to increase your privacy.
- Foundation planting: Many homeowners install them around their foundations, especially along south-facing sunny sides where less sun-loving plants might wither. It is okay with heavy pruning to keep them below window height.
Gardeners adore the cheery, bright green leaves on this evergreen shrub. They are a welcome pop of lively color, especially during the dreary winter months.
Northern Privet has tiny, cream-colored flowers with small petals that form in attractive clusters. The earliest bees that arrive in the spring will find the nectar--a sure sign of warmer weather.
