is this a Common Privet?
I just bought a house and need help identifying some of the plants around my yard.
I have a whole hedge row of these... erect shrubs, have not been tended to for a while I would guess, look to be about 2 meters tall at the highest point. Going to look horrible when I trim them back to a manageable size (tips for pruning whatever this is welcome also)
Pictures taken today, 6/30/2014. Plant almost done blooming, flowers nearly gone. Would fall off like snow if stalk was shaken.
Leaves are simple, opposite, entire; leaf stalk is hairy.
I don't know the terms to describe the flowers, sorry.
