    With it's elegant lollipop shape, this small-leaved privet makes a stunning stand-alone specimen. It is also useful for mixed borders, where its structural silhouette will help draw the eye, and act as an anchor for more billowing foliage. It comes with a clear stem approximately 70-80cm in height, and as it is a relatively slow grower, it is really easy to maintain.

  • Garden care: Clip foliage to maintain the shape in late spring or summer. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) layer of mulch around the base of the plant in autumn.

  • Harmful if eaten
