Forestiera neomexicana Berry Girl - A Good Screen Bush
from Santa Fe, NM
I have a male and female New Mexico Privet growing side by side on the North side of my house. The Privets get both morning and afternoon sun as they are in an East-West corridor along the faux-adobe wall. The female grows much more densely than the male. I had a Robin that sat on the wall and ate berries all winter long. He was very content and very plump! This summer I have a small bird nesting in the female. The Privets are used as a screen between me and my neighbor. I prefer the female growth formation. This is a hardy pretty bush that can be pruned back extensively. The Privet is cold hardy and tolerates high winds well.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
