Question: What are the best tall screening shrubs I can use for privacy?

Answer: Your nurseryman will need to answer that for your specific needs and conditions, but some of the best include tall hollies such as Nellie R. Stevens, burford, willowleaf (needlepoint), Mary Nell, Foster’s, Wilson’s, Savannah and yaupon, also ligustrums, cherry laurel, oleanders, standard abelias, elaeagnus and viburnums. Redtip photinias might be included in the list were it not for their disease and insect problems.
