ideas for fast growing privacy shrub?

thahalibut(Z-9 CA, SSZ-9)September 25, 2008

We lost a privit & I replaced it last year, but it is growing so slow. It will take 4 or 5 years to block what we want. I also put some nandina there & dont know how fast that will grow. It gets a couple hrs of sun max. Looking for something around 6' tall & evergreen.

Nandina grows fairly quickly as long as you don't start out with a tiny plant. It is a good choice for your situation.
