The Q&A Archives: Hedge Background Plant

Question: Partial shade, to 8 feet maximum, evergreen; need to keep to within 24

Answer: Susan,

That is a lot of specs for any plant to fill. Most all hedges are either going to be wider, taller and/or need more sun to do well. You might consider a standard type of Nandina (not dwarf) as it can be kept to those proportions. Another option could be an Aucuba but it would need some pruning to stay that narrow.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
