I am in need of past experience...I need to plant a living privacy screen along a 12' high, 70' long fence. I am wanting something that will have foilage year round but also bloom. Some ideas I have thought of are bougainvilla, climbing roses,columbine, perhaps a mixture, I'm a novice gardener but do seem to have a green thumb.Privacy is big issue because there has been an apt. complex built in what was empty field for 20 yrs. I live in Florida and the plants along fence will get half full sun, half shade daily. Thanks

Do you have a preferance to vines over trees/bushes or either or???

Flowerery, ornamental???

Do annual vines stay all winter or do they die off like here??? Or keep on going??
Just curious??

How about viburnum. They grow 15 feet tall and 15 feet wide. I've planted 3 in my yard. We also planted Arizona Cypress. They are supposed to grow 3 feet a year, but ours have grown an average of 5 or 6 feet a year. They are huge.
