Ligustrum delavayanum is a lot more interesting than the usual Common Privet. It has small, glossy leaves and arching branches that end with fragrant white flower panicles in early Summer. From August, dark blue, then black berries decorate the plant until at least January. The Delavay Privet is very easy to grow and branches out freely - ideal for bonsai or topiary. Drought tolerant so won't mind to live in a large pot on the patio.
