Northern Privet is a favorite shrub to form hedges. It is ideal as topiary for lawns and parks. The Northern Privet can grow to be around 15 feet high and up to 8 feet wide if left unattended. However, given its popular use as hedges, pruning is often desired, and regrowth is denser after each clipping. Northern Privet is a resilient plant but grows best in partial to full sun. It will become in fertile, moist, well-drained soils but does poorly in heavy, wet soils. Northern Privet is deciduous and will shed its leaves in the fall.
