I don't know about you, but we are hoping cooler temperatures are around the corner. While we might be biased, we think Kentucky has the best Fall! Beautiful foliage and enjoyable temperatures.
If you are looking forward to spending time outdoors, but could use a little more privacy, we have some ideas!
Arborvitae are great, but sometimes enough is enough! Set your landscape apart with these unique vertical beauties for screening or as a vertical accent while supplies last!
Selected Screening and Vertical Accent Plants - Alternatives to Arborvitae
Columnar Norway Spruce
Picea abies 'Cuppressina'
A narrow column of dense upward growing dark green branches make this a truly unique Norway Spruce. Potentially 8' wide at the base and 25' tall, this quick growing column makes a great screen or boundary planting.
It's also prized for its urban condition tolerance and ability to withstand heavy snow loads making it a top choice to replace arborvitae.
Juniperus virginiana 'Taylor'
A narrow selection of the native Eastern Red Cedar, 'Taylor' grows only 3-4' wide, but reaches 15-20' tall.
It has a dense blue-green color making it an excellent narrow privacy screen or stately vertical accent.
It is easy to grow and drought tolerant.
Juniperus scopulorum 'Skyrocket'
Even more narrow and blue than the 'Taylor' this perennial favorite juniper grows onlu 2-3' wide by 15-20' tall. It's a classic for framing entryways or formal gardens.
It is a good alternative to an Italian Cypress as it can stand up to our sometimes harsh winter climate in Kentucky.
