Privacy screening plants
I have a somewhat shady spot in my backyard, where the fence is not too high. I had bamboo growing there, which was great for privacy, but just took over and was so hard to control. I just removed it. I"d like to put something else there that is tall, provides privacy, and maybe deters intruders from jumping over the fence, without being too intrusive--is that a tall order or what?!
Any suggestions are welcome.
I was thinking of Pampas grass, italian cypress, or putting up some trellises and growing bougainvillea. I don't know if any of those plants do well without full sun, and not sure if Pampas is very invasive or not.
