I'm interested in finding plants that make good hedges, but that have translucent leaves so as to let light through. I'm interested in plants that can create privacy without blocking all the light.
The reason I want the extra light is to allow for more sun in the garden (and to attract more pollinators—they like light).
What do you think would best handle this scenario?
(It's a bonus if they're edible, medicinal, or otherwise multipurpose.)
For landscaping purposes, I guess it doesn't really have to be a hedge of plants, if you can think of something else that could work.
