Straight Talk Privet (Ligustrum vulgare ‘ Swift’) is a quick growing shrub that only grows 2′ wide but can reach an impressive 12′ high.
Like all privets, it handles pruning without any problem if you need to keep it shorter.
Straight Talk is a great vertical accent for any garden.
It’s tightly upright shape guides the eye upward in any garden setting.
It won’t spread wide, so it always maintains a well-kept look, whether you prune it or not.
Cold and drought tolerant, Straight Talk will be a strong backbone to your garden beds and borders.
Primarily grown for its thick foliage and upright habit, it also has small, fragrant white flowers in late spring that attract bees and butterflies.
The flowers are replaced in the summer and fall by black berries that the birds love.
