|This is an upright, columnar, semi-evergreen shrub with nodules that are spaced closely. Leaves are dark green, elliptic shaped, 1/4 inches long. White flowers are held in panicles to 2 inches long, followed by round blue-black fruit. Clip hedges twice in summer. This is considered the best of the many Privets though some consider it a weed. It can be trimmed into many forms.
