The Q&A Archives: Japanese Privet

Question: Does JP have a fragrant white flower which smells like orange blossom? Would it grow in zone5 PA? where would I be able to get one?

Answer: JAPANESE PRIVET (Ligustrum japonicum) does have fragrant flowers, but it is not rated hardy for your gardening zone. RUBY SPICE SUMMERSWEET (Clethra alnifolia 'Ruby Spice') is a fragrant shrub that grows well in your gardening region. Check your local garden centers for availability.

Best wishes with your landscape!
