Callistemons and grevilleas seem to grow really well in this lousy clay soil I have. I want to rip out the camellias which are currently growing (poorly) near a side fence. (Not planted by me either). So basically I'm looking for something bushy (for privacy), at least 2 metres tall, will cope with full sun and quite a lot of wind and which will live quite a while. Any suggestions appreciated.
