Can you recommend several privacy shrubs for a strictly shaded area of my backyard to provide privacy from neighbors. I need a shrub that would grow quickly in a fully shaded area corner with tall 8 foot hedges on both sides.

Wax Myrtle, or Azara microphylla 'variegata'
Also Check out Las Pilitas Nursery's webpage for California native plants that grow in full or partial shade. They have some great suggestions. Good Luck!
