The Q&A Archives: privacy shrub

Question: I live in Bakersfield, CA and need a fast growing hearty preferably flowering shrub to place along a fence for privacy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: Consider Abelia grandiflora (Glossy Abelia), Callistemon citrinus (Bottle Brush), Choisya ternata (Mexican Orange), Escallonia exoniensis 'Fradesii', Viburnum, Photinia, or Pacific Wax Myrtle. Each of these plants provides seasonal flowers, and each will grow quickly in your gardening region.
