Hi, I have successfully used Rhus integrifoliaLemonade Berry, Laural Sumac, Hollyleaf CherryPrunus illicifolia, misspelled?, and ToyonHeteromeles arbutifolia for hedges. I especially like Rhus intregrefolia for hedges. It is very amenable to pruning and training. Unfortunately it and Laural Sumac will not tolerate hard frosts. The other two will. I suggest trying a mixed hedge containing all four. It will not look formal, but I love the one I have grown in the SDSU area and the birds love it. I am preparing to plant one for my neighbor. Also, all four of these species are easy to grow from seed. Good luck. Walt </p>
