Juniper... good long term investment?
I'm considering buying two Wichita blue junipers (as tall as I can) to use as a screen.
I am now concerned however because many people on the Conifer forum say that this type of juniper does not do well in the long run. They are attacked by some sort of fungus. So, while they are very nice in the first years, they may become all brown in 7 to 10 years. I would be devastated to wait for them to become a good screen and then, have to throw them away.
These people however also say that it all depends on the individual climate. So, does anyone on this norther forum have blue juniper that are going strong after many years? I'm in Montreal.
Thanks for any info,
