*Ligustrum sinense Loureiro. Chinese Privet, Privy Hedge. Phen: (Late Apr-) May-Jun. Hab: Moist forests, especially alluvial bottomlands, and also in a wide range of other forests, woodlands, glade edges, etc. Dist: Native of China.

Origin/Endemic status: E. and se. Asia

Other Comments: This species is one of the most noxious of all weeds in much of our area, choking out native vegetation. The rapidity with which it has engulfed southern wetlands (and increasingly uplands as well) is hinted at by Small's (1933) mention of it only as "an escape in southern Louisiana" and Fernald (1950) did not report from the area of his flora.
