If you are looking for a versatile, robust variety of Privet, look no further than the Ligustrum vulgare 'Atrovirens'. This hardy shrub can be pruned into an evergreen hedge which provides a dark backdrop for feature plants. Alternatively, it makes an attractive free-standing plant, especially in July and August when it produces white flowers followed by small, dark fruit. Although fast-growing, Ligustrum vulgare 'Atrovirens' is suitable for low maintenance gardens and can thrive almost anywhere, whether sunny, shady, warm, cold, sheltered or exposed. Height and spread: 2m (6'6").

Flowering Months
Privet can be grown as either as free-standing shrub or trained as a hedge. The Free-standing shrubs are low maintenance, needing very little priuning; simply removed any dead, damaged or diseased growth each spring. Hedges can be trimmed in May and again in August. After cutting, the plants will benefit from a mulch, approximately 5cm (2") deep of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plants. Caution: harmful if eaten.
Privet can be grown in any well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. It will tolerate soils ranging from sand to chalk and clay, and even areas of pollution.
