The Wavy Leaf Privet is an attractive evergreen shrub with glossy, rich-green leaves. The leaves are oval and 2 to 4 inches long. The tip and the leaf-edges are curved and twisted, giving this plant a lively appearance. In spring it is covered with large sprays of pure-white flowers, making bright show in your garden. Unlike other privets, this is not a large plant that will take over your garden and escape into natural areas. It forms an upright plant no more than 8 feet tall, which if unclipped can become about 6 feet wide. It is an excellent low-care and tough plant for anywhere in the garden, for making a dense hedge, or for planting in a large container as a specimen shrub. It naturally grows dense and full, but it can also be easily trimmed into shape if you want to reduce it size.

  • Attractive evergreen with deep-green, glossy leaves
  • Grows just 8 feet tall, and 6 feet wide
  • Attractive pure-white flowers in spring
  • Happy in shade, and drought and heat tolerant too
  • Resistant to salt spray and grows well near the sea

The Wavy Leaf Privet will grow in any soil at all, except for ones that are constantly wet. It thrives in sand or clay, and once established it is very drought resistant. It is also an excellent choice for shady areas, where it thrives, and it is unaffected by heat or cold snaps. It grows well in zone 7, with winter temperatures down to zero degrees, as well as in the heat of sub-tropical zone 11. It is also resistant to salt spray, making it a great choice for the beach or ocean frontage.
