I would like a fast growing evergreen edge that can reach aprox 5-6 meters , but not conifers . Any one got any ideas please



I like escalonia, it is a darkish evergreen with pretty flowers from pale to deep pink depending on the variety. It is easy to trim and quite quick growth rate depending on how much you trim it.

Will that reach the height, Seaburngirl? How about Laurel, either Portugese (Prunus lusitanica) or Common Cherry (Prunus laurocerasus Rotundifolia).

daughters school has at least a 12" job around the technology block that is cut in a very strict wedge.

I'm unconvinced Photinia will reach that height as a hedge - I've seen a tree like specimen at 13 feet, but that's the biggest. I reckon Prunus laurocerasus has to be the one to reach 18 feet or more.
