Hi all, Here is the problem. On the East side of my house along the property line my neighbor has planted about seven young oleanders. As we all know, oleanders are a beautiful, messy, poisonous plant. They are planted about six inches from the small brick wall on my property line. Technically, I guess you could say she planted them on my property, because my little brick wall is about six inches on my side of the property line. She's a nice lady and if she wants the oleanders I'm not going to say anything. I haven't planted anything on the small spit of land beside my driveway yet. My property is situated along N,S, E, W compass points. My carport is next to the East side of the property and she planted along that side. So the sun will travel from one side of the oleanders causing shadows along the small spit of land beside the driveway, over top at noon then I would think the land between the oleanders and the driveway will be in the sun after noon goes by.
Now here is the question, do you think once the oleanders grow tall anything I plant there will not get enough sun, and what do you think I should plant? The area is about 10 feet long by 3 feet wide. I worry she'll let them grow unhampered without trimming them and it may be hard to see on coming traffic when I back out of the driveway.
I hope I explained things well enough.
So, anyone have any input on this conundrum?
Anything I plant will need to be drought tolerant,and need little care.
