GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Formosan juniper is a highly ornamental species, commonly planted in China but little-known elsewhere.
  • Specimens with the smallest leaves have been found growing at the alpine timberline, resulting in many naturally dwarf selections and excellent Bonsai material.
  • It is an evergreen coniferous shrub or small tree that grows to mature heights of 50 feet (15 m) tall, with a typical pyramidal or cylindric crown, spreading to ascending branches, and 3-angled, pendulous branchlets.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Tolerant of most soil types, it prefers 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 growing 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.

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.
