Sorry your photo did not come through, can you try again?

Hi, and thanks for re-sending the photo. I believe this plant is privet, Ligustrum vulgare. It tends to be an invasive plant and difficult to get rid of. In spite of that, it's been used in landscaping since the 1800's. In fact it still is.

I'm including a fact sheet from Penn State with more information.

Thanks again for your question.
