I have the Desert Privet as a houseplant, just in a very small pot, passed on to me following the sad demise of my mother. I am delighted with it because although it says here that it can grow up to 12inches mine is 21inches and still growing! I love it, not only because it belonged to my mother but because it appears to be doing so well though for the 4 years I've had it it has never bloomed yet, though I live in hope.
