  • Pros/Cons
  • Flower Care
  • Quantity Help
  • Subs

The Good: Privet is one of our most favorite berry element due to the texture of it's 'tiny grape sized' berries! It is more delicate than hypericum, so we often use it in daintier arrangements.

The Bad: Inconsistent bunch sizes, fullness of berries, can be sparse. Also, these little berries like to shed like a Siberian Husky, so expect this! The foliage isn't our favorites and often unusable, so we typically snip it off. **We added many photos in attempt to show all the different ways/shapes privet can come so you're properly informed for realistic expectations.

  • Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.
  • Remove leaves below waterline.

Privet Berry is considered an 'Texture Flower'. Based on our design ratio suggestions here's our quantity recommendations:

  • Bridal Bouquet: 1/3 bunch
  • Maids:  1/4 bunch
  • Bouts:  sprigs
  • Corsages: sprigs
  • Centerpieces: 1/4 bunch
  • Large Arrangements: 1-2 bunches

Flower Moxie reserves the right to make changes or substitutions. All substitutions are only done as a last resort, and only when the reasons for doing so are reasonable and genuine. For example, if a flower becomes unavailable (off-crop), incorrect color, or not in good condition to grace a wedding function we will substitute a flower that has a similar color and price-point. 

Acceptable Subs:  Snowberry, hypericum berries, or another textured element that works within your specific palette.
