Ligustrum undulatum, commonly known as privet or wavyleaf privet, is a species of flowering plant in the Oleaceae family. It is native to Australia, specifically in the eastern parts of the country.
Ligustrum undulatum is an evergreen shrub with dense foliage with leathery, wavy-edged leaves that are dark green on the upper surface and pale green underneath.
The shrub produces small, fragrant, cream-colored flowers in spring and summer. The flowers are borne in terminal clusters, measuring around 10 centimeters (4 inches) in length.
 Following the flowering period, privet produces small, round berries that turn from green to black when ripe. 
Ligustrum undulatum is considered an invasive species in some regions outside its native range. It can spread rapidly and outcompete native vegetation, impacting local ecosystems. Therefore, it is important to exercise caution when cultivating this plant, especially in areas where it is not native.
In gardening and landscaping, privet is often planted as a hedge or ornamental shrub due to its dense foliage and ability to be easily pruned. However, its invasive nature has led to restrictions on its cultivation in some areas.
