What kind of hedge is this?

Here's a closeup of the leaves of a privacy hedge around the edge of our front patio that's been growing at our house for at least forty years. It's very tall -- far taller than the roof of our one-story ranch house.

It lives on irrigation water. It likes sunlight; the side that gets more sunlight grows thicker than the side that gets less.

In the spring it gets tons of clusters of tiny, thickly-growing white flowers. (I don't have a picture of that right now.) The flowers only grow on the "sunny" side. (Note, there isn't any "shady" side, just the northeast side that gets less intense sun than the southwest side.)
