GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Juniper has long been a popular ornamental garden plant for its four-season interest, ability to grow in most regions, and virtually carefree nature.
  • With shapes ranging from ground-hugging juniper bushes just 6 inches high to towering juniper trees 130 feet tall, and colors from steely blue to shimmering gold, there’s a juniper that suits nearly every landscape need.
  • Whether you want to cover a slope for erosion control or create a privacy hedge, there’s one that fits the bill.
  • A member of the cypress family, there are some 50 to 60 species of these coniferous evergreens, which occur natively throughout the Northern Hemisphere, from the Arctic region to tropical Africa.
  • Here are some garden-worthy varieties suitable for urban lots and other common residential landscapes

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Tolerant of most soil types, junipers prefer slightly acidic, organically rich soil with good drainage, as roots can rot in standing water.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Use normal organic fertilizer pellets or balls every month during the growth season or a liquid fertilizer each week.
  • If strong growth is desired some higher nitrogen levels can be applied in spring.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Place the tree outside, year-round, on a bright spot with lots of sunlight.
  • The Juniper cannot live indoors.
  • During the winter protect the tree once temperatures drop below -10 degrees C (14F).
  • Some species change their foliage color during frosty periods to a purplish brown which is connected with their frost protection mechanism.
  • In spring they will turn green again.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Be careful not to water too much, as the juniper roots don't like soil wetness.
  • Before you water, the soil should dry slightly. Misting the tree can be done regularly, especially after the tree has been repotted because it benefits from air humidity.
