Red Tips (botanical name Photinia) are popular and should be readily available in most area nurseries. They make outstanding privacy hedges because they are evergreen and easy to prune. Other plants you might consider include Yupon Holly, Wax ligustrum, Cherry laurel, or Drooping Leucothoe. All of these plants grow well in Georgia and any of them will make a nice privacy screen. Hope this information is helpful!
