Green Columnar Juniper
Juniperus chinensis 'Hetzii Columnaris'
|Description||An attractive, upright, pyramidal form highlighted by crisp bright green foliage on dense, tight branches. Prized for its versatility, it works well as an evergreen screen or background planting, in natural form, or shaped. An excellent specimen for topiary use in formal gardens. Well-suited to containers.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Grows 15 ft. tall, 5 ft. wide in natural form.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge, Privacy Screen, Windbreak, Suitable for Topiary|
|Design Ideas||This is a super windbreak plant when lined in a tight row. When slightly separated, its staccato repeats create an architectural divide. This column of green foliage is available in spirals and poodle columns that are perfect in formal gardens or, best of all, as potted specimens. Also, you can let them grow naturally and gradually shape as you see fit. Perfect for Persian-inspired courtyard gardens when used as a matched set of four at the corners of a large tiered fountain or central plaza. A good choice for bringing two-story walls down to a more human scale.|
|Companion Plants||Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Rose (Rosa); Catmint (Nepeta); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Barberry (Berberis)|
|Care||Highly adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune as needed to shape.|
