|I need a hedge plant to block our neighbor's view, needs to be pest, disease, and heat resistant. Fast growing max of 25 ft tall.|
|I had a hard time coming up with suggestions for plants that filled all your requirements. Here are a few suggestions for hedge plants, taken from the book "Xeriscape Gardening: Water Conservation for the American Landscape", by Connie Ellefson (Macmillan, 1992):|
Ilex cornuta -- Chinese holly
Lonicera frangrantissima -- Winter honeysuckle
Pittosporum tobira -- Green pittosporum
Common privet (Ligustrum sinense) is a common hedge plant; it is evergreen and a vigorous grower. Ligustrum japonicum is another possibility.
