Vines - help me make a decision
I'm considering 2 different vines for the purpose of providing my deck with privacy. My neighbor 2 houses away has built a deck with a direct view into my low deck. I feel like my privacy has been violated although these are nice people.
I've narrowed my choices down to the following:
A euonymous that will remain evergreen during winter. I just don't know about the growth rate. It does look very classy - especially if I use the variagated variety.
or a dropsmore honeysuckle which would develop a woody trunk as it matures. Will attract hummingbirds so this would be a plus. Downside would be in winter when it drops it's leaves but by then I won't need the deck.
I had wanted a wisteria but it's just too aggressive and it takes years to bloom. And Roses are out of the question because of the thorns. It's going to be in an area where children will play a lot.
All I want to do is to block their view but not completely. So the objected is to keep the yard open while providing a good screen.
So what do you think of the choices?
