Hi everyone,
I am looking at replanting my back fence into something that will grow into a hedge. I'd like it to be in the 3-5 ft high neighborhood and 3'wide.
I've been looking at Rose of Sharon Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, Dwarf Crape Myrtle Bush, Encore Azaleas and Knockout Roses.
I am in zone 8b (coastal Mississippi) and this back section gets a ton of sun, except for the corner, it is mostly shade.
So I am looking at something that will bloom in the sun and at least tolerate shade so I can plant the same thing all the way down. I'd prefer something I don't have to water every day, once established
Any suggestions would be so helpful.

Blue Wild Indigo (Baptisia australis)
White Wild Indigo (Baptisia alba)

I'm not sure how either will handle full shade, but they can definitely tolerate part shade. Can grow in wet, medium, or dry soil. They both flower in late Spring/early Summer. Get to about 4' tall, 3'-4' wide. Wont need any watering once established.
