Answer: Slow is pretty slow when you want a screen in a hurry, say maybe up to six inches per year once established. This is true for most of the quality broadleafed evergreens. You might find a rhododendron you like or possibly a camellia or holly with a fairly similar look and size but they too will be in about that range of non-speed. Sometimes in this type of situation a trellis installation or fencing will be more satisfactory for screening and then you can soften the look with container plants in the summer or grow a vine on it. Your local professional nursery staff and/or county extension may have some additional suggestions, too. Good luck with your project!
