New Mexico Privet is a drought tolerant, large shrub native to the Rockies. It requires little in the way of water or care and thrives on the High Plains if you don’t over-​​water the plant. It is treasured for its white bark. With some base pruning to expose the bark it can have a similar look to aspen.
