Chinese Privet is quite attractive when it blooms in mid May here in West KY. Just beware that it is terribly invasive
Dense thicket of chinese privet. It crowds out everything else.
Privets are beautiful. Privets look their best when they are allowed to grow to their full potential. I love the look of cascading privets. My yard is always green and full of life.

But one of zillions along the roadsides of Northeastern Oklahoma.
Heavy, sweet fragrance fills the air. This privet is absolutely loaded with blooms in Spring.
