Taylor Juniper

Juniperus virginiana 'Taylor'

Semi-soft, blue-green foliage is beautiful. The narrow columnar shape gives this evergreen a formal look. Makes a great privacy screen, a flanking plant for entrances or a dramatic vertical element to the landscape. Important to note 'Taylor' maintains a denser upright form than similar plants. This Nebraska Statewide Arboretum introduction is a sport of an Eastern redcedar found in Taylor, Nebraska.
