Are there Juniper shrubs that grow pretty fast?
Hi everyone. Im new to this forum and i have a question or two. Hope i dont sound to dumb. LOl...We may be moving soon and i have an old blue juniper that i love and hate to leave. It has blue needles and little blue berries. Its more a bush than a tree, wide not tall at about 4-5 ft. The other property is a new construction with nothing. I really love evergreens and especially junipers of blue or yellow coloration's but i would need something that might grow fast. Are there any like that? I also would love to have evergreen trees as privacy screen between us and another house. I love Hemlocks but have heard they get attacked by parasites. I love their soft needles. I thought maybe pine trees but they also get attacked by parasites and are not very full looking. I would like something that is more thick and less easy to look through. Hope that doesnt sound to dumb but i have tried to look at stuff on the web and i just cant tell by reading their information. So i would be very appreciative of any recommendations on the privacy screen and nice shrub junipers. I really love the look of Weeping Alaskan Cedar but have no idea if they could make it here and work close together as a screen. The property was a deciduous forest with some cleared to put the house so i heard the soil is acidic but i need to test it to make sure. I love hollies too but im scared of the real prickly ones and wouldn't want that. Thanks so much for listening to me ramble i just want to make good decisions and not mess up. I thought it best to seek your advice and knowledge.
