Plant for privacy screen

Boise, ID

I have an 8í x 2í planter at the base of a deck w/ hot tub and want to plant something tall as a privacy screen. Something with a very upright habit as there is a walkway adjacent to it. Shrubs tend to host a lot of spiders in my area so not preferred. I can contain in a galvanized or concrete planter if needed and ideal height 4-6 feet, all seasons. Iíve been looking at horsetail rushes but Iím not sure theyíll be tall enough. Iím in Zone 6. Any suggestions?

I agree, a grass is the way to go if you want something there all season and donít want to do a shrub. Miscanthus grow tall and stay up well in the winter. I have a super cool sedge that gets 6 feet tall too. I canít remember exactly what it is though.
