Pines are sun loving conifers, a tree that bears cones. These conifers are considered evergreen, which means that they keep their needles for at least two years. As the older needles fall, new ones are ready to grow in their place.
The blue spruce is one of the most commonly recognized evergreens available due to its tones of silvery blue-green needles, This conifer produces pine cones and has a very appealing conical shape, making it a great landscaping focal point.
California Privet Shrubs are semi-evergreen shrubs that are commonly used for shrub hedges and privacy hedges. The oval shaped dark green leaves are particularly appealing.

A quintessential southern tree known primarily for its large, creamy white and very fragrant flowers in spring and early summer.
Hardiness Zones 6-10, best in sun, tough, cold hardy, can survive in poor soil, fast growing, plant 5 or more feet apart for a solid fence. Plant further to maintain conical shape towards top.
Hardiness Zones 5-9, can handle more snow and ice than the others, light, feathery foliage, can survive in poor soil, not ideal for salt, fast growing, can handle sun or shade, plant five feet or more for a solid fence or further to maintain conical shape.
Hardiness Zones 3- 8, can handle extremely cold temperatures, can survive in poor soil, medium growing, bright green foliage, plant two-three feet or more apart for a solid fence.
In this zone, Leylands and Green Giants have been known to get to 20-35 feet in time. They also can grow between 10-15 feet wide so if you have ground to cover, these are a better option. They are fast growing, usually growing about 2- 3 feet a year depending on growing conditions and faster in warmer zones. Emerald Green Arborvitaes stay slender at about 4’ wide and shorter than the others at around 10-15 feet tall.
Thick and dense dark green with an upright pyramidal shape (when properly maintained over time) Can get leggy if not pruned.
Thick and dense rich green with a pyramidal shape (when properly maintained over time) Can become thin if not pruned.
Brighter green than their cousin, columnar in shape, narrowing towards the top.
In recent years, Green Giants and Leylands have skyrocketed in popularity simply due to the high deer resistance rating. However, an area highly populated with deer may find they occasionally snack on them, too! Deer resistant does not equal deer proof.
Emerald Green Arborvitaes are not deer resistant. Because of this in certain areas they often end up taking on the shape of a lollipop (bare on the bottom) in areas with deer as they tend to snack as high as they can reach! These trees are perfect in a fenced yard because they don't get too wide.

According to both the ANLA Standard and customary nursery practice, a plant properly belongs in a particular size category (e.g., 2 - 3’ ht.) if it has reached the minimum size for the category (e.g., 2’ ht.) and has not yet reached the maximum size (3’).
Thus, a 24-35” tall plant would be described as 2 -3’ or 3' in size. (Please note that the rootball and container are not counted in measuring plant height.)
Many container plants are sold by either their measurement size or container size (e.g., 1, 2, 5 gal.), or both. Most but not all evergreens mentioned are commonly graded by height. Pricing increases, sometimes greatly, when moving up a size range due to the availability, need for additional pruning, fertilization and water, and increased shipping costs. Smaller sizes ie 1-2' are not available as careful growing conditions are required to build a strong plant with a defined central leader.
