A privet from Bob in SC

This is in my yard. It is about 4.5′ tall. It has small white flowers. The picture of the cutting has a lighter for scale. Thank you.



you have some kind of privet, genus Ligustrum.  It does not appear to be one of the species that commonly escapes in our area, so I am not positive of the species.  It may be Ligustrum quihoui, which I do not know very well.  I would show the images, or take a piece, to a local nurseryman to see if they can identify it further.
