Wax Leaf Privet: Ligustrum japonicum, or the wax leaf privet, is a cold-hardy, fast-growing evergreen shrub that enjoys wide popularity across most USDA-growing regions in the United States.
Wax leaf privet grows in sun or partial shade. It prefers fertile and consistently moist soil.

People who love the classic looks of precision-trimmed shrubs or hedges tend to adore this species. After a thorough pruning, it recovers quickly and looks fresh, full, and lovely faster than most can imagine.

The flowers produce tiny flat berries that measure under a quarter inch. While they are not valuable for humans, your local wildlife, including birds and squirrels, will happily clean them as they drop. They provide excellent nutrition for wildlife, and you will enjoy watching your backyard visitors enjoy their windfall.
