Can you tell if I can planet a Hornbeam hedge in zone 6 Indiana, and if so, which species you recommend. The hedge will be on the West with some shade mid day, direct sun 8:00AM to 11 AM and again at 5PM to 7PM. Looking for something other than Boxwood or Hews. If you can recommend the Hornbeam or another option. Thank You!
