Trees or shrubs?
I am trying to find a tree or shrub that can be used for privacy, tall enough to screen overlooked windows. I imagine it needs to be about 10ft to do the job but have seen that most trees take up to 10years to get to the height I need. I thought maybe a shrub might grow a little faster? I was thinking maybe a red robin photinia, an amelanchier or a cornus but it needs to be happy in my clay soil. Does anyone have any good advice or ideas please? I'd love something with some seasonal interest or something that flowers if it is evergreen.
