Looking for a tall, fast growing privacy screen plant
Im in Fayetteville, Arkansas, zone 7A
i live in a normal type neighborhood. lot sized is just over a quarter acre.
i have neighbors who share fence on all sides of me.
I am looking for some kind of privacy screening plant to put along my back fence for more privacy. We have privacy fence, but they arent double layered so you can somewhat see people on the other side.
also their house sits up slightly from mine, and i feel like they can somewhat see down into my house when the blinds are open.
I am looking for something that is fast growing.
I need it to get about 7 feet tall b/c i need it to go taller than the actual fence.
I would prefer the coverage to be there year round (so looking for some kind of evergreen tree/shrub?)
A couple of species of plant i have thought about are Fraser Photinia. which i know can get tall, but it might take a while.
Also Miscanthus Giganteus - was in the ornamental grasses forum and came across a thread about it, so googled it and saw how tall it got.
