Cheyenne privet


I have been desperately trying to find Cheyenne Privet in the Toronto area as my 86-year-old Cheyenne Privet hedge needs some replacement. I used to get them from the now-closed Plant World on Eglinton but no-one else seems to know what I am talking about or carries this privet. I have been calling everywhere but no luck. could you help me find this hedge privet? I’d be so grateful as I am so frustrated with this long search! Thank you!


Cheyenne Privet ( Ligustrum vulgare ‘Cheyenne’) also known as common/european privet does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.
