What type of evergreen could I plant here?
We have a spot in our patio bed that needs a new shrub. Our criteria is something evergreen and tall, i.e. when fully grown, it can be 9 or 10 feet tall and fill out to about the 5 foot width. The height of the pergola overhead in that section is very high, and we'd like the privacy. We are curious if an arborvitae or dwarf Alberta spruce is possible, but each time we see them at various nurseries, the plant tags cite different heights and widths for these once fully grown, making it very confusing! This is a full sun area, especially in the Summertime, as it faces Southward. We had ornamental grasses that we just ripped out - they grew out of control! More details and dimensions in the pictures. Thanks so much!
