nandinas & pyracanthas

kittyjhg(Zone 7)March 11, 2008

Want to plant a living privacy screen between my yard and neighbors. Love nandinas & pyracanthas and would like to plant both-maybe in groups of three or alternating or...? Anyone ever done this? Do they both grow about the same height at the same rate? Live in upper middle mississippi.

Thanks ya'll, Jeanette from Mississippi

There are several different nandinas, as you probably know, you would want the tall ones for a privacy hedge. In my experience, they are fairly slow growing. I think pyracantha grows faster and gets taller, as I've seen it grown like a climber on a wall or trellis. Also beware of the thorns on the pyracantha that I understand really hurt ("firethorn").

I wouldn't do it that way. Nandina is slow to establish, but usually takes over after a while. Pyracantha makes a great cover for fences and an impenetrable barrier too. If you want really fast and thorny go with Cherokee Rose. It needs no care either.
