Please help me find a plant!

daphne_odorata(15)April 2, 2005

I live in zone 15 and am looking for a plant screen between a house and street. I thought of choosing Pittisporum tobira variegata. But, not sure if there is enough light. It is a northern exposure. Want something around 6 feet tall and don't have to prune too much.

Thanks,

Daphne-Odorata

Does anything grow in 15?
I'm not trying to be a smart butt, I'm just amazed. Guess I need to come out of my shell of a world, huh?
What kinds of things grow where you are. I've seen a bouganvilla (sp?) and it is lovely.

Well nice of you to respond Abby. I was hoping for help. And, I guess it is not that simple. Bouganvilla freezes here. WE get snow. I am from the S.F. Bay ARea. Most everything grew there. WE get so much rain up here that things drown. It's a rainforest. The redwoods live here. Thanks for the Bouganvilla thought though.

I think that the zone Daphne odorata is referring to is Sunset zone 15.

Daphne, you may have better response at the California forum where posters are much more aware of your climate and growing conditions and the plants that grow there. I don't think all the posters there are from southern California, as I see posters there from Sunset Zone 14. We northerners and far northerners (zones 0-5 or 6 or thereabouts) would have very little experience in helping you to choose a suitable plant. Hope this helps.

Hi

I did a "Google" search and found it on the Hortico site in Waterdown, Ont. Could not see any Quebec sources. Hope this helps.
