Choosing the Best Plants for Hedges If you want to fill up a space fast then Juniper is the plant for you. Juniupers are so versatile – they can be great ground covers but also screens and borders. Their beautiful evergreen foliage goes great in combination with big-leaf plants. Some junipers can grow up to 60 feet tall, while other grow mostly in length (horizontal varieties) If you decide to plant junipers in your garden make sure the soil is well drained and that they’ll get enough sun.
