Berbersis darwinii is a prickly dark green tough as old boots evergreen. It has orange yellow flowers in spring that are very attractive, easily pruned to remain compact. Fairly fast growing
Senecio greyii is evergreen too...more wide than high ...with silver grey evergreen leaves and bright yellow flowers in spring.
hardy fuschias produce quick growth and summer flowers
as a hedge without flowers taxus ...yew...is superb. Tough, evergreen and easily trimmed. Taxis Aurea varieties have yellow/olive foliage brighter in summer
hebes down here make superb flowering hedges too
