I have a chindo sweet viburnum in a 5 gal can. I think I want to make a hedge along my back fence. They would be on both sides of three redwood trees.
***III*** like that! How much space should I give them apart and how close to the evergreens? This is a kind of privacy-wall I want.

Viburnum awabuki 'chindo' is a medium fast to fast growing shrub for full sun to part shade. It has a coarse texture that is a good contrast for many evergreens. This plant grows well in clay or sandy soils and tolerates slightly wet areas. It has also proven to be both pest and disease resistant. Place your plant about 5' apart for quick fill-in, 8' apart for slightly slower fill-in. You can shear the plants to encourage dense, bushy growth.
