Drought Resistant evergreen that can grow in a very shady area

Zone Zone 6 | Anonymous added on May 28, 2019 | Answered

Hello - I am looking for some evergreen trees to plant in a wooded area. I need an evergreen to have some year around privacy. The area is very shady and there is no irrigation system. The soil is very hard and full of rocks/stones I am in zone 6 (Philadelphia). I therefore need a drought tolerant evergreen that can grow in the shade. I was wondering if you could recommend a specific tree for my need. Thank you very much
