Lovely though it is I would not plant any dqphne as a reliable provider of privacy.  They generally are not long loved and are susceptible to viruses.  As a windbreak?   No

taller and winter flowering mahonias are worth checking out as is Berberis Darwinii,,,,this is evergreen and early spring flowering though.  Viburnum Tinus flowers in fhe winter and is scented and evergreen

Geum keenongreen,

only thinking of you but you are getting too many plants.  It is a little known fact that a physiological disorder occurs when a lot of plants are purchased and planted.  Let me help you.......just forward your plants to me and I will dispose of them safely.  Yes, I will do that for you 

It is so annoying that we are never given such info.
