Ligustrum Japonicum (as the common name Japanese Privet would suggest) is native to Japan. With a waxy leaf, these popular evergreens are slow growing and easy to maintain. Ligustrum produces small white flowers in summer, followed by a black fruit in autumn. The fruit was traditionally used in oriental herbal medicine.
