hey,
our neighbors have a fence that looks crappy/is leaning and we have big trees on our side. we cant get our own fence wo getting the trees cut down which is super bad idea bc it helps with the water in the neighbors yard. wo the trees they would have a swamp. judging by the way they have their hoses from the gutters ran they have a water problem. plus we like the trees. . They wouldn't remove their old fence for the other neighbors who ended up butting up against it so we are not holding out hope that they will cooperate even if we pay. so Im wanting to do a living hedge between the trees like i said it can get wet there at times. what will get 6ft and live in wet shade?

Arrowwood Viburnum (Viburnum dentatum)
Fragrant Sumac (Rhus aromatica)
Eastern Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius)

The buttonbush will also attract pollinators, as evidenced by the photos in our database. And it is native to Kentucky, so should do well for you. Not sure how much shade you have, and how much it will tolerate, there seems to be conflicting info on that. It does have a cute little flower!
