I Desire a Formal English Hedge
I've been to the UK on several occasions and fell in love with the formal hedge. I now want/need to grow one in my back yard and want that lovely formally clipped, straight line row. I realize the English Yew isn't practical for our region so I have done extensive research and have come across the Leyland Cypress to the Thuja Plicata. I have narrowed my search down to the Thuja Plicata and would like to know if this is, in fact, a good selection for what I want to do?
Is there a better shrub for the Carolinas? If Thuja Plicata is the right choice, where do I get it? Can't locate it anywhere . . .
