 The Most Poplar Hedge-Shrub in the United States

The Amur North River Privet is a fast growing, deciduous shrub is primarily grown for hedge plants. It will grow to 15' tall with a spread of at least 8' if not trimmed. It can be pruned to any size and shape desired.

There is no specific time of year to prune it and regular maintenance will retain its' size.

One would make a pleasing specimen plant, but several planted as a hedge would be outstanding.

If you do not prune in spring, two inch long panicles of white flowers will seem to spring forth in all directions on hardy, erect stems. Butterflies and other pollinators will find this a special treat, enhancing your enjoyment of their spring presence.

If it develops fruit, the tiny, oblong black drupes will develop in the fall and will tend to hang on into the winter for your birds to enjoy.

It’s a multi-stemmed, dense growing shrub with oblong, leaves that attain a subtle yellow hue in autumn. Those leaves will even persist through the winter.

Your Amur North River Privet isn’t just an attractive and adaptable plant; it’s also winter hardy, drought tolerant, transplants easily and is long lived. In fact, it’s so hardy that it thrives in almost any conditions.

The Amur North River Privet is obviously a highly beneficial shrub for the home landscape, whether left to grow naturally as a lovely shrub, or pruned to a fit a particular purpose.

It’s easy to see why it’s the most popular hedge plant in America today.

be patient Review by digger
mine came with small buds on it, which dried up and fell off so i thought it was a goner. i gave it a few weeks and new buds finally showed up. since then it really took off. it's grown at least a foot and looks great.
Fair Review by Ginger
From the 5 plants I ordered last year, two never leafed out. Very disappointed.
Jury's still out Review by M
Planted 150 of these 1 1/2 yrs ago and they seem to be doing okay. Growth rate varies, so I have had to prune several times to keep them all even. Leaves do stay on quite a long time, altho I'm in California, where it's pretty mild. But I'm okay with them being deciduous. I'm hoping they'll have a growth spurt going into their 3rd season, since I planted them for hedge/screening/privacy. Hoping for the best!
Fast growing shrub Review by Mr P
Good shrub for screening..I wanted a small shrub of about 7 feet tall.. I made the mistake of not pruning it when it was young. The plant got very leggy after three years and unattractive. For a nice dense shrub prune after the first year of planting then every year .
Beautiful but smelly Review by T.
This hedge is amazing as far as a privacy screen, needs little attention, pretty drought resistant and grows in crummy ground. It has beautiful white flowers that cover it completely. Unfortunately for my sinus, I can smell them several blocks away! They produce a sickeningly sweet fragrance that prevents me from sleeping with my window open, but Im not giving it up!
