Stately, columnar form makes this likely the narrowest juniper available - so narrow and upright, in fact, it resembles a skyrocket! A durable and versatile evergreen with beautiful bluish green foliage, it works well grouped to form a colorful screen, or singly as a garden accent in a mixture of conifers. Requires very little care, once established.


Easily grown in a wide range of soils, including clay, alkaline and compacted soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.


Average Size at Maturity

Quickly reaches 15 to 20 ft. tall, 2 to 3 ft. wide.

Bloom Time

Conifer; prized for foliage.

Design Ideas

This thin columnar Juniper fits into very difficult places such as narrow side yards between homes. A super windbreak plant in both cold or hot climates. A hardy alternative to Italian Cypress in Mediterranean-inspired landscapes. Try planting in matched pairs or on four corners of a central courtyard. Makes a super vertical accent in mixed conifer gardens.
