Heard Of Trestonia? - Knowledgebase Question

Los Angeles, CA
Question by SusannahB

I am looking for an evergreen "screen" to hide a 3 story apartment building in the lot behind us. A landscape architect recommended Trestonia/Treestonia but I cannot find a picture of it anywhere. I am also considering Bengamina Ficus, although it is somewhat uninteresting. Any thoughts on either? THANK YOU.

I'm not familiar with 'trestonia', but there are many trees and shrubs which can be used successfully for screening unwanted views. Here's a list - as a bonus, some of these plants produce seasonal flowers - Arborvitae, Ilex (holly) Ligustrum (privet), Cupressocyparis leylandii (Leyland Cypress), Myrtus communis (Myrtle), Leptospermum, Nerium (oleander), Photinia, Xylosma congestum and Escallonia.
