Answer:Hi Marion.  This is a local area question. Local soils, local water (even grey) and local microclimates all combine to create your local area’s signature. So, go around the local area until you find a great hedge that you admire. Then pop in and ask them what it is. If they don’t know, take a sample of the plant to the local nursery and ask them to ID it for you. It is that simple.  Don
