Well the fence is in and the water is warming! The only major thing left is landscaping and I am looking for advice on shrubs/plants that can thrive in a zone 6 setting while providing a degree of privacy. In particular, one side of our pool and fence line is adjacent to the road approximately 30 feet away, so we will be looking to shield that portion as much as possible. Also, are there any long blooming summer flowers that are well suited for zone 6 climate? We have already purchased a handful of plants such as large leaf rhododendrons, andromeda, and wine rose, but anyone with any experience or suggestions to share, please do so. It is most appreciated!
