Answer: Have you considered Nandina (heavenly bamboo)? The dwarf forms can be maintained at 4-5' with very little pruning. Nandina produces insignificant flowers and red berries but their beauty is in the red foliage they develop during the winter months. The foliage remains on the plants and turns green again when the weather warms.
Best wishes with your new hedge!
