Hollies are among the top choices for privacy plantings and for good reason. Their dense, evergreen foliage and upright form make for a reliable wall. The distinctive oak-shaped leaves of Oakland™ Holly set this variety apart. An elegant selection that is also easy to maintain, Oakland™ requires little pruning and will add a flush of color to the winter landscape with red berries.
As the name suggests, Bigfoot™ is a giant among cleyera, reaching heights of 15-20 feet. A fast-growing shrub, Bigfoot™ produces a uniform blanket of glossy evergreen leaves that are free from disease. Its narrow profile allows Bigfoot™ to be used in small spaces needing full enclosure.

Combining colorful flowers and foliage with controlled growth, the deep purple foliage of Purple Diamond™ Semi-dwarf Loropetalum offers something a little different in the realm of privacy hedges.
