What are some recommendations for native perennials and flowering bushes for privacy?


I would like some recommendations on flowering bushes for deck privacy and also perennial flowers for plots.  Previously theses plots have been planted with non local plants.

We appreciate and approve of your interest in native plants! The Extension maintains several bulletin resources on Maine plants that can give you some great ideas for your needs:
