4 foot tall informal hedge in sun
I am in Zone 24 San Diego within 2 miles of the coast. We want to plant an informal hedge row between our home and our neighbors. The area is on the south side of our home in full sun. It is about 50 ft long and about 3 - 4 feet wide (just depends how close to the neighbors we plant...we will discuss with them).
I really want something that can be kept to around 4 feet in height and that is drought tolerant once established. Both of our homes are in the caramel color family so I was thinking of Nandina or possibly Red Fountain Grass. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts or other suggestions as I've only been gardening here 2 years :) If we go the Nandina route would I be best with a variety like Gulf Stream? I've seem some here super tall so I want to be careful.
