The Privet Honeysuckle is a semi-evergreen shrub that stays low and spreads wide, thanks to the horizontal branches it sends out. The bright green foliage resembles boxwood, and this plant can be used as an easy substitute for those slow-growing plants. It can also be planted as a causal border or ground cover, in almost any garden setting. It has small fragrant white flowers in spring, and sometimes purple berries in fall, but its main charm is the glossy foliage and neat form of this versatile plant.

  • Small green leaves resemble boxwood
  • Fast-growing shrub under 3 feet tall, spreading horizontally
  • An excellent plant for small hedges and borders
  • Grows well in all light conditions
  • Resistant to deer and salt spray

Almost all light conditions suit the Privet Honeysuckle, from full sun to full shade. It grows in any well-drained soil, from acid to alkaline, and tolerates salt spray in coastal areas. Deer, pests and diseases generally leave it alone, and you can trim it at almost any time of year, regularly for a neat, formal look, or once a year just to keep it low and bushy.
