These seeds were collected from Ligustrum vulgare, Common Privet, European Privet, and Wild Privet. This shrub likes to live in sun to partial shade where it can get about 15 feet high. The white blossoms are fragrant and on display most of the year. You can make a yellow dye from the leaves and bark, and a high quality green-blue dye from the berries, and a black dye or ink from the fruit. The wood is also high quality and can be very valuable if grown large enough to work with. Smaller branches are used to make baskets and tool handles. This wood is also used to make charcoal. This plant is a larval host for the Laurel sphinx, Great ash sphinx, and Waved sphinx moths. USDA Hardiness Zones 7 to 10.
