Privet Plants - Full Guide | TN Nursery



Privet is a kind of plant which can be planted to provide a good home environment for people who like the nature presented through plants. This plant is easy to plant and maintain as it only requires pruning to ensure that it grows to the desired height and width.

After planting, it is difficult for the plant to dry up compared to other plants, which quickly dry up. You can decide to let the plant grow to the maximum height, trim the ligustrum to the desired level or leave it to grow as a shrub. The privet can grow to about 15 feet when mature and left untrimmed. This plant can be planted to provide privacy as the leaves are thick and, when pruned, can grow into a thick hedge to a home.

Due to their use in providing privacy, these plants are also called privacy trees. They can be used as primer hedges to be planted close to each other and trimmed to ensure that they form thick hedges and borders.

The privacy trees can also be left to grow as a shrub without pruning and trimming, an excellent contrast to the main well-trimmed hedges. The trimming can be done to a desired form and pattern, making it attractive and appealing to the owner and people who visit the home.

The California privet is a semi-green plant that grows well in full sun and partial shadow. That is a perennial plant that is difficult to dry after it has been produced. That is ideal for river hedges as they can stay for a more extended period while green than the other types. Once the plant has established itself, it becomes difficult to kill it regardless of the prevailing weather conditions.

The plant can be cut to the ground level, but with time it sprouts again, making it hard to be cleared once it has established itself. The plant has thick leaves which are much brighter and can grow to a dense thicket to provide privacy when used as a hedge or border.

It bears beautiful flowers, is a good scene for your home and can be used when filming movies. These flowers are fertilized into purplish-black fruits. Though these fruits are poisonous to man and some animals, they are highly eaten by birds; hence, they will be suitable for people who have birds as their pets.

At maturity, this plant can grow to a height of about 15 feet if not trimmed. However, the California private takes more time to grow and mature than other shrubs.

Generally, the privet can thrive well in different climatic zones. It can thrive well in hard and dry zones. These plants can be adversely affected by temperatures below ten degrees centigrade and are suitable for warmer areas.

These plants can be planted anytime in the year as they are locally available at plant nurseries where different varieties of plants are grown and have them ready as seedlings for transplanting to your home or farm.

The ligustrum can be planted as seedlings by buying from the plant nursery or planting directly as seeds and, when nurtured well, grows into a big shrub.
