what kind of hedge forming shrubs can i plant where there is very little sun? I need something that will make a privacy hedge about 5 to 6 feet tall. It is close to a pine tree and gets a little sun in the late afternoon. I rather have something that does not bloom because of bees being bad where we sit Thanks Maxie

It's tough to grow a hedgee in the shade, but a few plants you might want to consider are arborvitae, yew, and privet. None of these flower. They would grow best with at least partial sun, but after talking with your local nurseryman, they may do okay in your situation.
