I have the dogwood shrubs. I can even say they grow in a hot climate and mine get afternoon sun. They are a fast grower and I prune mine back very often and they bounce right back. I will post a picture in the photo section of the team page. Sandy

My first reaction to your question was The Boxwood but I still investigated this on line and found the following.

One of the most common types of shade hedges is the boxwood. These shade hedges can be grown in areas of full sun to full shade, and are widely adaptable to different soil types. The dense foliage of these shade hedges gives the impression of a continuous surface, and will be present year round. These evergreen shade hedges are hardy in zones five through eight.


Another of the popular shade hedges is the red twigged dogwood. These shade hedges have burgundy colored bark in the winter. Blue-black fruits follow the creamy white blooms of these shade hedges. Birds and small animals eat the fruits. Growing to a mature height of eight to ten feet, these shade hedges need a good water regiment and are hardy in zones three through seven.

I was wondering if any of you guys could suggest an ever-green hedge that I can grow in the shade. It gets a little sun, but I'd consider it shade.

We want to plant a screen between our house and the neighbors (something fairly fast growing) but everything I have experience with needs sun.

Any suggestions?
