Answers

The tag says 10-12 feet. I've seem them as tall as 15. This is a fast growing plant. It's perfect for screening. It can be maintained at 6 to 8 but you will need to stay on top of pruning, shaping, and trimming it.

Are these toxic plants

Asked by debi June 21, 2020

Answer

YES! Privet berries are poisonous for dogs as well as humans and the leaves can be even more toxic in large quantities. Toxicity is due to the presence of terpenoid glycosides.

good shipping and size
3 gal delivered as promised. The containers are sturdy! Plants were stuffed into individual boxes as full as possible and not overly trimmed. What i would expect for the size. Will reorder from this nursery

Very healthy specimen, but overpriced for a such a tiny plant
I bough four of these and two of them were 13 inches tall, and two were 14 inches. For $36 each, I expected far larger. They're the height of some little annual flower. Take a look at my photo. Nothing like the display image in the web listing. Since these grow less than a foot a year in less sunny spots, this will take years to look like it's anything close to a hedge plant.

Looks good but too small shrub
Those are delivered healthily and look nice. But the size is small I expected.
