Growing flowering shrubs is a thoughtful way to spotlight a Butterfly Garden. Plant these taller shrubs on the north side of a collection of pollinator perennials and do a great deed each year.
Commercial property owners can use these hard-working shrubs as a backdrop to a memorable garden feature. Try sculpting them with dips...or keep them pruned into topiaries.
Install a uniform checkerboard planting of your favorite ornamental flowering trees from our catalog; uplighting into the canopy of each one. Use Privet along one side of the planting to add an impressive sense of gravity.
Because they can tolerate full sun to partial shade, North Privet Hedge also makes an exceptional choice for a long running hedge at the edge of your property. As a huge bonus, a green living fence is far less expensive than a hardscape fence.
Plant it where it will receive at least four hours of sun a day. Good air circulation will benefit your shrubs, so pull them out away from the sides of buildings.
These deciduous shrubs perform best in well-drained soil. You'll want to use Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for significant benefits that last the entire life of your hedge.
Although established Privets become moderately drought tolerant...you'll want to protect your investment with supplemental water. Apply a moderate amount of water on a regular basis to keep your plants happy and stress free.
Prune to shape in early spring. It's ok to wait until after the fine-textured, fragrant flowers are finished.
The more you prune the denser and bushier this shrub gets. Keep them trimmed in a tall triangle shape, where the bottom is wider than the top.
You'll find so many ways to enjoy this hugely popular, graceful hedging plant on your property. We recommend that you order enough North Privet Hedge to complete your entire project at the same time.
