Good Hedge for NC Region?

wjgaddisSeptember 4, 2006

I am looking to grow hedges that most closely resemble the English Yew (unless, of course, the English Yew is perfectly adapted to growing in NC . . . in that case, where can I get them?). Looking for something that is good for clipping, shaping and creating outdoor garden rooms (like the kind seen in the UK)

Any advice?

I've seen a yew advertised as good for NC at New Garden Nursery in Greensboro - needs shade here I think. I can't visualize how well it would handle clipping. Try their website and then google for info on the variety. - Becky

compacta holly will do well and some of the other larger hollys.

maybe podocarpus macrophylla (if hardy to your area). they can be grown in my area, upper end of zone 8.
saw some this weekend in eufaula, al that made a nice, tall hedge. i love the texture of the foliage.

Here is a link that might be useful: podocarpus
