Holly as a Hedge?
Hi - I'm in the process of planting a perimeter hedge around my property. I'm trying to use several different varieties of shrubs. In one area I'm considering using Holly. I'm hoping someone can provide their recommendation on which variety provides the best privacy hedge. I would prefer a variety that grows high and wide and can be trimmed into a tight hedge. My firth thought was Nellie R. Stevens Holly ... Any thoughts?
I'm in zone 7 and I would consider the area to be partial sun. Also, when is the best time to plant?
Thanks in advance
