Hedge plants are a great idea for home landscaping. They have a variety of benefits. For one, they protect against nosy neighbors. The best kings of plants to use for this purpose, sometimes called screening plants, are those that are shrub like, but grow tall in height and have dense foliage. Some great ideas for a hedge plant are the Japanese Buxus, the Murraya Paniculata, the Photinias Red Robin and the Trachelospermum Jasminoides. All of these plants have unique features which will no doubt help you to decide whether they belong in your lovely garden. For instance, the Photinias are known for their bright blends of colors. The new growing leaves sport a vibrant red, which contrasts with the more mature, darker green leaves. The Murraya can reach heights of up to seven meters tall. It also produces lovely flowers, which are small and white in appearance.
