The Q&A Archives: evergreen hedge

Question: we need an idea for some kind of evergreen hedge about 200 ft long no maintenace, if posable, maybe some kind of ceder? that grows thick from ground up.

Answer: Suggestions include Calocedrus decurens (incense cedar), Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (Port Orford Cedar), or Cupressus (cypress). These conifers are evergreen and do not require shearing to maintain their shape. Mid-sized evergreens such as Thuja (arborvitae) or columnar Junipers Also grow well in your area, as do Viburnum, Berberis (Barberry), Salal, Privet, or evergreen huckleberry (Vaccinium ovatum). Good luck with your landscaping project!
