The Q&A Archives: Looking for some privacy.

Question: I am looking for something that is fast growing and will make a good privacy border. I live in a zone 7 area and the plant needs to be one that will survive sun and shade. You can name one that is good in the sun and one that is good in the shade.

I want to thank you for your time and help.

Answer: You have quite a few choices. There's evergreen clematis (Clematis armandii), Violet trumpet vine (Clystoma callistegioides), honeysuckle (Lonicera), wisteria, or climbing rose. If you're interested in edible landscaping, kiwi (Actinidia), or grapes would be fun to grow in the sunniest area. Each of the plants above will adapt to the growing conditions your site offers.
