A friend is looking to plant a privacy hedge; juniper might be one option. Are junipers resistant to deer damage? Looking particularly at Juniperus virginiana, Skyrocket.

The website njaes.rutgers.edu has a list of deer resistant plants. From what I have found deer do not prefer junipers because of their odor. But deer will try most plants so nothing is really for sure.

Thank you very much!!
