The Q&A Archives: Tall Flowering Hedges for Partial to Full Shade

Question: I need an idea for a tall, preferably flowering hedge that will do well in partial to full shade and will grow reasonably quickly. Do you know of anything fitting that description? Thanks! Linda Fair Lawn, NJ

Answer: The best flowering hedge for part of full shade would be a rhondodendron, Mountain Laurel or Pieris. They can get up to 10-12 feet tall depending on the variety, like shade, would not be a formal hedge, but will provide a blcok and flower in spring.
