This is located in a sunny location and hasn’t bloomed in the 10 months that we’ve lived here. It’s glossy but very boring. Any ideas?

    Looks like Japanese privet…
    Should bloom soon…
    Once you’ve positively identified… Be a good bush to dig out..

    Thank goodness you helped! I have Japanese privet right in front of my porch and didn’t know that it’s considered invasive! However, the plant pictured has much larger leaves and isn’t blooming while the shrubs in front of my porch are blooming all over.
