The Q&A Archives: Privacy Shrub

Question: I need advice on what to plant in a part sun/part shade area against the side of my house. I need privacy from the home next to me. what would be the best shrubs or trees to plant?

Answer: Climbing hydrangea is something you might consider; Japanese barberry, Pieris, Thuja 'Green Giant' or Physocarpus Coppertina will all grow in the area you describe. All except the Thuja produce seasonal flowers; the Physocarpus has very attractive foliage.

Hope one of these suggestions is just right for your landscape!
