Evergreen Hedging Dilema

Hi

My husband and I are trying to decide on a evergreen hedge for our garden. We have a lovely stone wall that we built and we wan to have a hedge that is clear stem up to about 120cm.  We want to maintain the feeling of space and still see the wall through the stems.

It has to be evergreen, quite hardy as we are in an exposed windy postion inland. Not particulary found of red so have already discounted Phontina (Red Robin) or some hollies with red berries.  We we close to choosing Elaeagnus x ebbingei in a clear stem form from an Italian supplier only to find at the last minute the stock they held was a grafted form of plant, and would not be that hardy.

Any suggestions of any other hedging that would be suitable in a windy exposed position?

 

Thanks

Hi Welshonion

The plants will be right close to the wall to allow us to maximmise the space in the garden

Hi,

I am trying to decide whether to use Holm Oak as a clear stem hedge in my garden.  I have a newly built stone wall with lime pointing that I wish to  add a hedge above the level of the wall to give added privacy.  I am concerned about the root system of the Holm Oak and any potential issues with the wall.

Can anyone give adivise on this or any other suitable evergreen clear stem hedgin otions, it is quite an exposed windy site with clay soil.

Thanks
