Plant Notes:Glossy Privet is a non-native large shrub or small tree in the Olive family (Oleaceae). It is found throughout the southern two-thirds of Alabama. Glossy Privet occurs on vacant lots, in disturbed woodlands, along fence rows, and along streams. It is an evergreen with thick, opposite, dark green leaves. The species often has multiple trunks. The bark is smooth and light greyish brown. Small white flowers are produced in panicles at the ends of the branches. The flowers have an unpleasant odor. These are followed by blue/black drupes, each with four to five seed. Birds consume the fruit and disperse this species. Glossy Privet was once frequently cultivated, but has fallen out of favor except for a variegated form. It can be confused with the related Japanese Privet (Ligustrum japonicum Thunberg). Glossy Privet is a larger plant and its leaves end in a sharp point. Those of Japanese Privet are rounded at the tip. Glossy Privet is listed as an invasive species by the Alabama Invasive Plant Council and other states. --A. Diamond
