Smile Tall screening plant/tree/shrub

Any suggestions from anyone who might have any ideas what to plant in a large tub that will grow 10' to 12' foot tall that would screen a neighbour's window. I have no flower bed/soil as patio, hence the tub. Can be evergreen or deciduous, would get a little early morning sunlight from the East.

Thanks very much!

Not a shrub but you could plant some runner beans and train them to
climb tall canes for a temporary Summer screen. I believe runner beans
were first grown in this country for that purpose as a screener ?

Why do you need to screen the window?
