Privacy Shrub Collection for the East/Midwest is a specially designed collection of small trees and shrubs that will create beauty and privacy.
Buddleia alternifolia Argentea (Silver Spring Blooming Butterfly Bush) has silver foliage with long, cascading panicles of lavender-purple flowers are sweetly fragrant and attract many colorful pollinators. New Mexico Privet is an attractive multi-stemmed shrub or small tree with ornamental white bark and brilliant yellow fall foliage. ‘Berry Girl’ is a female plant that sets a huge fall crop of dark purple berries eagerly eaten by songbirds. Forestiera neomexicana ‘Happy Boy’ is a male plant needed for pollination. You need both male and female Privet plants for pollination/berries. This collection does best in low fertility, dry soil. Forestiera can grow well in the East, but best for areas with lower rainfall or very well-drained soil.
Included in the Privacy Shrub Collection are 3 plants each of: Forestiera neomexicana Berry Girl, Forestiera neomexicana Happy Boy and Buddleia alternifolia Argentea.
We recommend planting each 6 feet apart with the use of Yum Yum Mix and Root Stimulator Combo Pack for the best results. This collection is suitable for Western planting as well.
Plants are subject to change due to availability. If we make substitutions, we feature plants with similar attributes suitable to the collection design
