|Landscape Use||Privacy Screen, Windbreak, Suitable for Topiary|
|Design Ideas||Very narrow but tall columnar Juniper such as this are dramatic, almost architectural plants. They are very formal in character and more hardy than the traditional Italian Cypress used in Mediterranean gardens. Line Cologreen up tight for a windbreak or privacy screen that's narrow enough to work well in sideyards. Space them out to create a colonade or allee typical of the Yew walks in European semiformal gardens. Try as a matched pair to flank outdoor art or more spectacular flowering plants. Use as a vertical accent for naturalistic landscapes of mixed conifers, or to bring down the scale of very tall, blank building walls.|
|Companion Plants||Barberry (Berberis); Rose (Rosa); Clematis (Clematis); Catmint (Nepeta); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus)|
|Care||Easily grown in a wide range of soils, including clay, alkaline and compacted soils; avoid wet, soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
