    Design IdeasThis unusual deciduous Privet is beautifully colored both during the growing season and in the fall when it takes on a fiery tint. Makes a good hedge but may become fully deciduous where winters are cooler. A great plant for wild gardens or in foundation plantings, as an ever-changing background or screen.
