|Design Ideas||This is probably the most frequently used Privet because it is so adaptable to topiary forms. Available in neat, vertical poodle forms, which are lovely in simple elegant pots flanking the front door or porch steps. Buy pyramid form for topiary gardens to flank walkways and gateways or to position on each corner of a center square knot garden or parterre. Can be used for lush green background foliage or as a large-scale windbreak. Makes an effective sound barrier near busy streets.|
|Companion Plants||Loropetalum (Loropetalum); Potentilla (Potentilla); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus); Euonymus (Euonymus)|
|Care||Provide well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune regularly to maintain size and shape.|
