Chinese Privet

It is absolutely everywhere this year, and it has a lovely scent and beautiful white flowers. I could even smell it this morning while driving down the highway where it grows on both sides of the road.

But Chinese Privet is considered to be one of the most widely spread, invasive plants in the southern U.S. It can form dense thickets up to 30 feet high, particularly along fence rows, which it has done on the property my sister and I recently inherited from our father. I don’t remember ever seeing it before on the property, but the fence row has been almost completely overtaken by it this year.

    1. It’s certainly becoming a pest here. I see it everywhere, and I honestly don’t remember ever seeing it before.
