Answer: Common privet (Ligustrum vulgare) is a deciduous shrub. So, if you're looking for a tall evergreen, you might consider Ligustrum japonicum, the Wax-Leaf Privet. It grows 10'-12' tall and 8' wide, with a dense, compact habit. Leaves are glossy medium to dark green. Myrtus communis reaches 4'-5' high and 5'-8' wide. The foliage is glossy bright green and the plant produces small white flowers during the summer months. Of the two, I'd recommend Wax-Leaf Privet for tallest, most dense growth. It makes an especially good hedge for your gardening zone.
