Juniperus chinensis 'Torulosa'
|Description||The artistic appearance of its twisted, rustic form makes this a wonderful landscape accent. An excellent evergreen for use as a topiary specimen in containers and formal gardens. Well-suited for cooler coastal regions.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Fast growing; reaches 15 ft. tall, 10 ft. wide, in natural form.|
|Landscape Use||Hedge, Privacy Screen, Windbreak, Suitable for Topiary|
|Design Ideas||Named for its popularity in Los Angeles gardens, this twisted upright beauty is very cold hardy. Its unique form and deep green color is striking against peach or white stucco walls. Use at entries and to mark gateways, and it is very attractive in conjunction with wrought iron gates. Grow on the corners of your house or between windows. It can be lined up in an informal hedge, but this spoils its drama as a single specimen and will not have the manicured appearance of a true hedge. Perfect for Mediterranean, Santa Fe, and Asian inspired gardens.|
|Companion Plants||Barberry (Berberis); Rose (Rosa); Catmint (Nepeta); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus)|
|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.|
