Forestiera segregata : Florida Privet
A drought and salt tolerant Privet and its offspring indomitably thriving in the sand of the dunes.
This old Privet is now a small tree, its branches having been pruned like bonsai along the way.
25 gal Privets just planted among a variety of native shrubs will soon become a solid view barrier..
After dropping its leaves in late spring, the Privet quickly puts out its abundant blooms.
Females are soon laden with tiny'olives' for local birds who will leave you new Privets here and there.
