The Q&A Archives: Tall, skinny evergreen for privacy

Question: I need to grow a privacy screen next to my house. I need it to grow 20 feet high to cover second story windows. I have only about eight feet between the house and a fence and the area is very shady. I live in Zone 7. What can you suggest? Thank you.

Answer: Roberta,

That is a challenge. Some options are Little Gem magnolia, a tall type of clumping bamboo, or a tall type of juniper such as Skyrocket.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
