elaeagnus (silverthorn, I think?)
N. MS. I want a dense hedge, tall, trimmed to six feet across the front of my yard. I plan to put a gate across the driveway. Looking for privacy, keep neighbors' dogs out of the yard. Want it to look pretty.
I want a sure thing (well in so far as that's possible with gardening!) I have full sun across the front, well drained, acidic soil.
Is elaeagnus the best choice??
If not, what is? If elaeagnus is the best choice, what size plants do I need to buy if I want a six foot hedge in three or four years?
Thanks for your help! It is much appreciated!
