New Mexico Privet (Forestiera neomexicana) - Zone 4-9
The New Mexico Privet is a versatile tree that is a great addition to any yard. The multiple trunks can be cleaned up into a tree, shaped into a hedge, or allowed to grow naturally for a summer privacy screen.
Plant in full sun to part shade and water regularly until established. The New Mexico Privet can reach up to 12-18' tall and 12' wide. Drought tolerant but does better with regular watering. Female Privets produce beautiful blueberries that cover the trees that birds love to eat.
