Description

A classically elegant selection, the Blue Point Juniper is just what any formal landscape or garden needs! This evergreen features reliable blue-green foliage with a naturally pyramidal growth habit. Juvenile leaves emerge needle-like and mature to small sprays of rounded-end, scaled leaves. This foliage is quite dense. Therefore, it's ideal for usage as a privacy screen, noise barrier, or windbreak.

This Juniper tree is truly an easy-care variety. Little, if any, pruning is required to keep this tree looking its best.

Once established, the Blue Point is drought tolerant, as well as deer resistant.

This is a remarkably versatile vertical element that works phenomenally well in landscapes, gardens, or containers. Line a walkway with them, plant them in a row of large containers, dot a property line with them, or use one as a specimen. They're sure to whip any landscape into shape with their rigid, sophisticated structure.

Looking to add a little more flair to your landscape? The Blue Point Juniper can be trimmed into fantastic topiary shapes, such as spirals or poodle patterns.

We guarantee that when you order Blue Point Junipers from PlantsbyMail.com, you'll receive healthy specimens that have matured into their pots.

Blue Point Juniper Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 4-9, down to -30°F once well-established.

Plant in Full Sun for best results, too little sun will result in less dense foliage.

Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season to ensure that it establishes deep root systems. During the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week. Afterward, this plant will need little supplemental water.

This blue-green Juniper tree tolerates a wide range of soil qualities, as long as it has good drainage. Junipers are vulnerable to root rot in perpetually moist or soggy soils.

Fertilize every few months during the growing season with a high nitrogen fertilizer to facilitate quicker growth.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

How to Space Your Blue Point Juniper

For a seamless planting, space your Junipers 6-8 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 8-10+ feet apart.
