Is there a downside to using fast growing shrubs? I was wondering if they were more vulnerable to disease and such since they shoot up so quickly. I’ve got a few of the shrubs mentioned above planted in my yard, and some have done great while others look pretty rough.
I’m not a genius when it comes to landscaping, but I’m not a moron at it either. Am I doing something wrong with fast growing hedges, or should I try my hand with slower growing plants instead?
