Hailing from San Diego, Zone 21 or 10a.
I need to grow a hedge to screen out a cantankerous neighbor. Needs to be 10
to 15' tall, maybe 5 to 10' wide, a solid screen. I can put the plants on my
drip system. We get moderate frost in some years.
My research yielded Italian Buckthorn (Rhamnus alternatus John Edwards) as a
likely candidate. Sounds good but difficult to find in local nurseries.
Does anyone have any experience, good or bad, with Italian Buckthorn? Any
other good choices for a tall hedge?
