Found along a trail. Occasionally in surrounding forest
Common understory shrub, with many seedlings.
The number of naturalized/invasive exotic shrubs in these woods is getting me down.
Simple, entire, opposite leaves. Fruit and flowers not present. About 3 feet tall. Found in the shaded wooded area surrounding the Tamarack Bog.
I found this privet near Strawberry Creek on the UC Berkeley campus.
If someone could help me identify what kind of plant this is, that would be great! It was growing on the sides of the towpath trail at the CVNP. These berries looked perfect in the snow.
Ligustrum vulgare (wild privet, also sometimes known as common privet or European privet), is a species of Ligustrum native to central and southern Europe, north Africa and southwestern Asia, from southern England and southwestern Sweden south to Morocco, and east to Poland and northwestern Iran.
