Common Privet Lodense is a variety of dwarf deciduous Privet (Ligustrum) that’s perfect for low hedging in an urban garden. Common or European Privet Ligustrum Vulgare is native to Europe and Lodense is a cultivar of this parent plant.

Although some privets have a bad reputation for taking over a garden this dwarf version doesn’t get too big – its name Lodense is a contraction of the words ‘low’ and ‘dense’. This small shrub has a naturally rounded growth habit and the narrow leaves are a glossy dark green. In spring, panicles of lightly-scented white flowers appear which are appreciated by pollinators although they have little scent. These blooms mature to small black berries which are taken by the birds. 
This is a very useful shrub that won’t outgrow its welcome. 

Height and Spread of Common Privet Lodense
Low-growing Ligustrum Vulgare Lodense will reach about a metre in height and spread. It takes well to clipping so you can keep it much shorter.
 
How Hardy Is Common Privet Lodense
Ligustrum Vulgare Lodense is hardy in sub-zero temperatures if its well-drained. It can tolerate drought once established and enjoys full sun. Privet is especially tolerant of pollution, making Lodense a good choice for front gardens in urban areas. 

How To Use Common Privet Lodense
Ligustrum Vulgare Lodense creates a hardy and textured low hedge to mark the front of a border. Its branches grow on the whole stem right down to soil level, so it doesn’t need plants in front.
It’s a good gap-filler in the border where it doesn’t get big and enjoys a container if it’s well-watered and fed.
 
How To Care for Common Privet Lodense
Ligustrum Vulgare Lodense prefers well-drained soil of any pH and tolerates chalky conditions. Plant yours in full sun or partial shade and water well until it is established. Lodense grown in full shade can become leggy and sparse.  

There’s no need to prune Lodense as it naturally grows in an attractive shape and doesn’t get higher than a metre, however, you can clip it with shears to maintain a preferred height and shape.
