Space for Limelight Hydrengeas
I am looking for some advice on planting limelight hydrangeas in by back yard. I have just removed some arborvitaes that were getting too large for the space. I have already purchased the limelight's but am questioning my choice.
The space that they will go in is a retaining wall that is about 3 feet off the ground. The space of the retaining wall is 72 feet long but 3.5 feet wide. At the back of the retaining wall is my neighbor's chain link fence. I absolutely love the limelight's, but am now am concerned about the space between the retaining wall and the chain link fence. I would consider the little limelight, but do not think it will give me enough size to create the privacy that I want in this space. Houses are close and right now it feels like I am living in my neighbors yard!
Thoughts on if this could work. Can I prune in the future to keep these bushes in check or will I be sorry that I planted them. If this is not the shrub for this place, please feel free to make other suggestions. The bushes that I have waiting to go are good size already - 3 feet or so.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
