Good Informal Flowering Hedge?

I was thinking about doing a Forsythia informal hedge, only pruning it when it started getting to leggy. Anyone else have a good suggestion tor and informal flowering hedge the generally grows in the 6-10ft range?

All hedges are informal if you let them grow natrualy.Viburnums and ligustrums are beautiful when left to flower.
We may not be the best, but you wont find anyone better

I got a few young viburnums along the foundations of my house near my back deck. I've always liked them, my parents have some that are around 8ft tall and very fragrant, when the windows are open in the spring the smell fills their house.

Viburnums: tinus (Eve Price), opulus, bodnatense (Dawn)
Pyracantha: any (thorny)
Berberis: darwinii, julianae
Syringa: any
Philadelphus: Belle Etoile or Virginal
Fuschia: ricartonii
Arbutus unedo (strawberry tree)
Choisya: ternata
Rosa rugosa (red and/or white)

Enough already.

Hope this helps
