Magnolias for the Seattle area
We have a neighbor with a hideous mint green house and bedroom window that looks into all of our windows (which is totally creepy, sometimes I see them peeking out at night) and I'd like to put in a number of evergreen tall shrubs/smallish trees to block their view. I'm aware that it will take several years for anything to grow taller than even the fence, but I'd like to get started in my planting.
Will a magnolia be an option? I have a weakness for flowering evergreens. :)
The most likely location would be just to the left of the big pile of dug-up vinca.
