    I would like to get Non-Flowering privit hedges and am wondering if anyone knows the name of these particular ones. I do NOT want the flowering ones and many don't have in the description of the hedge if it is non-flowering. Thanks for any help.

    I think the "privit" part is going to cause some grief on the non flowering part of your request. All privits I know of flower, some more than others. What height of hedge are you looking for? Does it have to be a privit or will any hedge do?

    How about a boxwood, or a euynomus hedge. Yew hedge...
    They dont flower (at least not pretty flowers)

    I already have privit hedges lining part of my back fence and they are the non-flowering type. I have tried to fill in the empty spots with the same Privit but keep getting the flowering type. The flowers bring in the bees something awful. I know there is a non-flowering type as I also have it on one side of my front yard ..... the other is the flowering. They are the same plant except for the flowers so I know it is a Privit. Thanks for any help :)

    If you already have the plants you want, why buy more? Just propagate some new plants from the existing ones. Privet are easy to propagate.
