Forestiera neomexicana (New Mexico Privet)

This native of the four corners region is tolerant of the worst conditions you may have: cold, heat, poor soils, wind and drought. Growing 8 ft. tall by 8 ft. wide, it has medium green leaves similar to that of a privet and makes a good informal hedge or screen. Provide it with once-a-week water, full sun and any garden soil. Fire retardant when watered regularly. This plant is not bothered by rabbits, squirrels nor deer when planted as a one gallon (or larger) size plant.
