Savannah Holly or 'Bright and Tight' Cherry Laurel or...
In the corner of my yard, it is necessary to put something that will reach at least 10 ft high, to screen off a neighbors window that has a birdseye view of our patio, and makes my girlfriend not want to be on the patio. The area is a tiny bit cramped, so I can't have a tree with widely spreading limbs. I don't believe there is any time of day when this location gets direct light. Its not dark, but not direct. Sort of dappled I guess. I am trying to stick with natives...or nearly natives. The two I am considering are Savannah Holly and the "Bright and Tight" cultivar of Cherry Laurel. My concern is that with limited light, the foliage might be a bit sparse to truly screen the area. Has anyone had any relevant experience with these plants.
