Wax-leaf privet is an old fashioned plant that has been popular in landscapes for years. It has been commonly used for hedging, screening, and topiary because of its dense growth and how well it responds to pruning. Ornamental blossoms cover thick, waxy leaves in late spring and summer, transforming into berries that birds adore.
Wax-leaf privet is very easy to keep at whatever size you desire simply by shearing; though frequently pruned plants tend to flower less. Plant this evergreen shrub in a location with lots of shade or morning sun, and in a soil that drains well.
