Guys, there are plenty of plants that work well in shade...they just aren't going to be formal type hedge plants...
I don't like installing stuff that "might do well", or will "work ok."
Wax Myrtles were planted in the back of my property prior to my home being built. The area is 95percent shade and the myrtles are thriving. I trim them three times/year just to keep them in check. I agree you shouldn't install stuff that might do well. I am saying the 80ft hedge in my back yard is thriving. A fence is a true alternative to a hedge.
