Ligustrum vulgare Atrovirens
This hedge is also known as evergreen privet; its leaves are deep green and range from oval-shaped to pointed. The plant is semi-evergreen. This means that it is theoretically evergreen, but loses its leaves partially during a very severe winter. In the spring, new leaves quickly replace the fallen ones. The privet is an exceptionally robust plant that does well almost anywhere. Privet is therefore popular as a hedge.
Privet is unsuitable for planting in very wet soil.
