A Hedge with Personality: The California Privet

  • Excellent Privacy Hedge
  • Ovular Leaves
  • Green and Yellow Foliage
  • Vigorous Grower
  • Easily Pruned and Shaped
  • Evergreen in Warmer Zones

This semi-evergreen is a great choice for gardeners looking for a dense, reliable, and ever-interesting hedge. The California Privet makes a striking and stately hedge that will flourish with blooms and berries while needing very little upkeep.

Also referred to as the "Oval Leaf Privet," this shrub has medium green foliage with an attractive, even, and understated leaf-shape. These leaves have a mellow and cheerful yellow underside. This happy shrub will produce prolific clusters of highly scented white flowers in the summertime. These peppy little blooms will please your local butterflies, hummingbird, and bees.

And while the California Privet is mostly renowned for its ability to form a dense hedge that will soar above your head, it also can be clipped and used in cut flower arrangements.

The California Privet grows in an upright shape with branching that reaches toward the sky.

This hardy shrub takes pruning like no other. If you find trimming and shaping hedging rewarding and meditative--this should already be in your cart. The California Privet makes for a refined hedge that has been used in the Hamptons and other coastal areas as a privacy screen for decades. It holds up well to wind, salt, and full-to-partial sun.

The California Privet grows rapidly and can be used on a small or large scale. Just be sure you trim yours after blooming, cutting back old growth, spurring new and vigorous growth for the upcoming growing season.

Don't wait to order your California Privet. This versatile and popular shrub sells out fast. We're pleased to offer it while supplies last, but we anticipate this stately shrub to fly off the shelves.
