For three years, my juniper has browned on some of the new tips. It's planted beside a downspout, but usually the clay soil is extremely dry and hard to keep moist. Two twig and tip blights cause juniper branches to turn brown at the ends, one in spring (Phomopsis blight) and one in summer-winter (Kabatina blight). These fungal diseases are exacerbated by overwatering, root damage and, especially in this case, drought. It sounds as if your junipers have Phomopsis tip blight, but in essence both diseases act in a similar fashion.

From: California Price: $10 Serve with: Grilled seafood, steamed crabs This is a well-executed while wine blend at a very reasonable price. Though both of these varietals tend to be aggressively fruity, the blend is pleasingly restrained. The wine offers flavors of minerals, lime, herbs, juniper, honey and a touch of freshly cut cucumbers. It's not ultra-complex, but it is a refreshing wine from a reliable producer.

Ciena Corp. shares rose 18 percent yesterday on expectations of good earnings numbers and speculation that the Linthicum telecommunications-equipment maker may be an acquisition target. Analysts said there is talk on Wall Street that Juniper Networks Inc., another hot vendor of network gear, may be eyeing Ciena. Ciena spokesman Aaron Graham said only, "It's our policy not to comment on speculation, and that's all it is at this time." Juniper also declined to comment. The speculation was the latest manifestation of a sentiment that has been building in the investment community: Ciena is back from the near-dead.

1997 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc ($11). This crisp white wine and seafood are a natural match. The no-nonsense dry wine has well-defined flavors of herbs, juniper, snap peas and minerals. Drink it this year to enjoy its freshness. It's just one more example of the uncompromising quality that Phelps has been delivering for a quarter century. Pub Date: 04/21/99

My spreading junipers look terrible. There is a lot of yellowing and dieback of branches. Is it the weather or some disease?What you are describing sounds like juniper tip blight, which is caused by two fungal organisms. Prune out affected plant parts. If the plants are in serious decline, consider replacing them with resistant varieties.I'm trying to get a little flower garden started behind my rowhouse, but seed-packet instructions have me confused. Some of the packets of annuals, such as zinnias and marigolds, say to sow the seed after danger of frost.

Q. I planted 12 "blue rug" junipers in my yard four years ago. This year the lower branches started turning brown, and they look terrible. The soil drains very poorly where they are planted. Is there something I can spray to save them? A. Junipers cannot tolerate wet soils. Your plant roots and lower stems are rotting due to poor drainage. No pesticide treatment will solve the problem. You can remove the damaged stems, but expect the plants to decline and eventually die. The only solution is to remove the junipers and replant with species that can tolerate wet soil, or remove the junipers and correct the drainage problem.

"Juniper Tree Burning," by Goldberry Long. Simon and Schuster. 459 pages. $25. Goldberry Long's first novel is a long excursus on the nasty narcissism of her heroine's hippie parents, and on their uncanny ability to transmit it to their daughter, whom they've named Juniper Tree Burning. In a prepublication statement, the author admits that the novel is autobiographical. Her name was chosen by her mother from Lord of the Rings, her adobe childhood house was in the Southwest with no running water, and, like her heroine, Long had the same desperate desire to escape her alternative upbringing symbolized by her name.

Corvis Corp., a Columbia fiber-optics equipment company, will announce today that its optical networks are compatible with Juniper Networks Inc.'s equipment, allowing it to create a faster, bigger network. "This accelerates the deployment of optical technologies to make the Internet faster," said Shyam Jha, Corvis' vice president of marketing. Juniper Networks provides routers that direct information through the Internet. With the new compatibility, its equipment can operate on Corvis' optical network at a rate of 10 gigabits per second, the highest commercial speed available, according to Carl Showalter, vice president of marketing for Juniper.

My back yard is about 40 feet wide and open on two sides. I would like some privacy. Can you suggest a tall, narrow evergreen hedge plant? Leyland cypress (X Cupressocyparis leylandii) is the plant most often used for this purpose. It eventually grows 60-70 feet high and 10-15 feetwide. It is adaptable and works in many situations, but it does require full sun. Another plant that might work is an arborvitae called 'Green Giant' (Thuja plicata 'Green Giant'). There is beautiful hedge of this plant at the National Arboretum in Washington.

2001 Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc ($10). This fresh, herbal, dry white wine offers excellent value at a modest price. Nuances of pear, juniper, sweet pea and mint combine to give it considerable complexity for a $10 wine. This wine would pair beautifully with grilled seafood, salads or Cajun cuisine.
