Privet is very popular and possibly makes the best hedge you can have in the garden, ovalifolium is the green leafed species. Even better it is evergreen which of course means you have the hedge all through the winter months too. However most evergreen plants have leathery hard leaves but Privet maintains a softer and a more pleasant leaf. Privet thickens out wonderfully into a very attractive looking hedge with a full appearance, perfect for topiary and striking shapes. If Privet was aloud to grow out, the are clusters of small white flowers.
