Description
Ligustrum vulgare 'Atrovirens' is a vigorous, robust variety of common Privet. This reliable shrub makes a superb free standing shrub or semi-evergreen hedge, even in particularly cold areas and exposed sites. Primarily grown its oval green foliage which forms a dense screen, Ligustrum also produces a good display of small white flowers in midsummer followed by glossy black fruits, giving plenty of interest throughout the growing season. Height and spread: 200cm (78").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

While Ligustrum are usually evergreen plants, staying in leaf through winter, severe cold temperatures can cause them to drop some or all of their leaves. This is a natural reaction and causes no permanent damage even when specimens lose all their leaves. New growth comes back quickly in spring.
