Most likely deciduous. Down here in the Deep South they're evergreen but still lose some leaves. The farther north you go, the more leaves drop during winter.

We had privet hedges on Long Island (zone 6) when I was growing up, they were definitely deciduous. However, I don't know what variety those were - probably L. vulgare (common privet).

Since I haven't see it, I can't "hate" it - S-curve and all. If the leaves are not dark green, fairly stiff, and glossy, it is probably Ligustrum sinensis, the Chinese privet. It is a weed and difficult to hurt, except that wood exposed from major chops rots very easily, no matter how you "protect" it.

It likely will be deciduous in your area. I'm in Zone 7 (almost 8) and mine lose most of their leaves in winter.[b]
