I like lime green with deep blue - how about one of your tender salvias or aconitums?

The witch hazels with red flowers have some pretty spectacular autumn colours too - this one is from Diane:

 The yellow flowered ones are less spectacular in autumn for me.

Closer to Bordon than Guildford, Hostafan.  Just outside Farnham.  One of our cycling routes takes us out that way - by Whitehill and Selbourne.  There is a fabulous Hosta garden in Lindford too - have you ever been?

Beech isn't evergreen, but gives all round screening as it keeps the old leaves till the new ones come out.  We have several, established form bareroot whips, and they only take a couple of years to get going and merge together ...another possibility for you to consider
