Privet - Cheyenne
Fast-Growing and Hardy Shrub
The Cheyenne Privet is a fast-growing, hardy privet that can be pruned to any shape. It’s perfect for your garden as a background plant or grow it as a trimmed hedge.
The outstanding feature of this shrub is its ability to be pruned to almost any desired shape. Whether you have a small spot between buildings you’d like to fill, or space for a privacy hedge around your pool, this hardy shrub can do the job. You don’t even have to worry about the right time of year for pruning. This shrub accepts pruning all year round.
Everything about this shrub speaks of its strength. The branches are multi-stemmed, the complex structure adding durability. Its dark green, lance-shaped leaves adhere to stiff upright branches. The leaves are known to cling to the branches longer than most, so you’ll still have green color into early winter.
It doesn’t mind what type of soil you have or if it’s dry or moist. If you’re in an urban environment, the Cheyenne can handle it. It will thrive in sun or partial shade. In almost any conditions, the Cheyenne seems to love it all. It’s even fast-growing, and long-lived.
If left un-pruned your Cheyenne can reach 8 feet in height with a 6 foot spread. It will have scented white panicles of flowers in the spring and small, round black berries that persist into the winter. Birds will appreciate your thoughtfulness for the extra winter treat.
For an adaptable shrub you can prune and forget, the Cheyenne Privet is the perfect carefree choice.
