The tree is dense and upright, tolerates both drought and heavy pruning, and can grow in a variety of soil conditions.

It has glossy, dark green leaves that grow opposite, evergreen, whole, and coriaceous.

Japanese privets are planted around buildings and pruned into "giant meatballs" or small tree shapes.
