What Is a Privet Hedge?
A hedge is type of living boundary comprised of bushes or shrubs. While you can create a hedge from many types of plants, the flowering plants in the genus Ligustrum are the most popular for this application. The common name privet came about in the first century from the Roman author and naturalist, Pliny the Elder. Privet shrubs are native to Europe, Northern Africa and Central Asia, and many varieties are used as herbal medicine and in flower arrangements. Ornamental hedges crafted with privet bushes became popular in Britain during World War II when iron gates and railings were confiscated for armament manufacture.
