Need opinions on planting a hibiscus hedge
I have a loooong chain link fence (almost 200 feet) with nothing planted on either side. I really want to plant something that will create privacy and would love it to be tropical.... Thing is, money is a real issue, so it needs to be CHEAP! I found a website where I can get 100 mellow marvel hibiscus plants for $115. I am very intrigued by their photo of a hibiscus hedge and it would be perfect for my budget, but as a newbie gardener, I am wondering if this is really something I'm ready to tackle. Any tips, opinions, pros or cons? How much maintenance can I expect? Will it provide privacy year-round, or will it die back in winter? TIA!
