Etymology

privet (n.) 
type of evergreen shrub, 1540s, of unknown origin. Early forms primet, primprint perhaps suggest some connection with the word prime.[2] prime (adj.) [3]
late 14c., "first in order," from Latin primus "first, the first, first part," figuratively "chief, principal; excellent, distinguished, noble" (source also of Italian and Spanish primo), from pre-Italic *prismos, superlative of PIE *preis- "before," from root *per- "beyond, forward, through" (see per). Could be in reference to Petunia being the first born of the two Evans sisters.
