Design IdeasPyramidal form and massive size makes it a popular specimen for lawns, which accentuate its blue coloring. Position near the driveway or to frame the front entry. With its dense evergreen foliage, this Juniper makes excellent windbreaks if lined up hedge-style, cutting winter cold and summer heat effectively. Makes an effective front lawn Christmas tree for winter lighting or to enjoy under snow.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
