Hello everyone!

I asking for some help finding a plant or combination of plants for a tight space in my landscape. I'm trying to create some privacy in front of an aluminum fence. The space is 5ft long and 3 ft wide and I'm trying to get something atleast 5ft tall.

Is there anything that would fit the bill? I basically need something narrow that grows tall. (doesn't really need to be tropical just fit with other tropicals)

Thank you!!

Cannas come in dwarf and tall varieties. The tall should be perfect for you. You can get a lot of different colours and patterns in the leaves as well as flowers. They can provide all year colour and look very tropical.

I doubt if Cannas would be tall enough. Why don't you try the Lombardy or Pencil Cypress. It is tall and extremely thin and doesn't look bad in a tropical setting. Good luck.- Ian.

How about a vine? You could attach any needed supports to the fence.

Sorry, don't know your climate to offer specific suggestions. Around here, the fence would be covered in 6 months, even if you didn't plant anything.
