evergreen screen plantings

Has anyone in Cincinnati or zone 6a tried Viburnum 'Chindo'?

One catalog lists it as hardy to z6 although others say 7. I need to block the view behind my house, and would like ideas for a large evergreen shrub or tree that can be used within a somewhat shady part woods area. I have clayish soil, near neutral pH, drainage is adequate.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I also live in Cincinnati and have two other viburnum that are growing in shady areas: Prague viburnum and Allegheny viburnum. Allegheny is considered semi-evergreen; Prague is evergreen. Both grow fairly fast and tall. I obtained both from Natorps. Hope that helps.
