Privet and Long Hedges in Zone 5?

April 11, 2009

I am looking to grow about 125 feet of hedge along my driveway. I am familiar with the negative results relating to Chinese Privet but I would still would like to grow it if it is possible here in Michigan (Zone5). If it isn't possible I would really like to grow something that is very fast growing and can can tolerate mild deer damage. Since I'm Looking for quick gratification (No Boxwoods)and deer resistance (No Yews) What would you guys suggest. I would prefer to find something that is fairly budget friendly since I'll be doing very tight spacing. Thanks in Advance!
