verticillium wilt and cedar hawthorn rust resistant tree
Hi - I removed a Japanese maple that I think had Verticillium wilt. Then planted a Winter King Hawthorn. The hawthorn looked great the first year, second year had yellow spots and dropped fruit. There is a Hollywood juniper nearby so I think the problem is Cedar hawthorn rust. Of course I could be wrong.
If I cut down the hawthorn, will the juniper be okay?
What can I plant that grows no more than 25 feet tall and is resistant to both of these diseases?
