Miscanthus grasses are excellent for screening.not evergreen though. They grow fast. Cut them down in the spring and mine are already 5' tall ....will add more yet. They keep,their structure over winter. Zebrinus is erect with yellow horizontal bands across its leaves. Variegatus, my favourite, is same habit but with bright, clean green and white leaves....slightly slightly at the top to look like a fountain. Lovely. There are others ....calamagrostis Karl,Foerster and Overdam, which is variegated, flower earlier than the miscanthus.
