About Blue Point Juniper

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, 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.

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.

    The blue point junipers arrived looking very healthy and robust. Can’t wait to get them planted this spring. Will order from pbm again!

    Not the fault of plantsbymail, but FedEx made the delivery and the boxes were upright in the truck and a lot of the soil was out of the pots and in the plastic bags. We pushed the soil back in the pots and immediately watered them. We waited a couple of days to plant them because the wind was gusting to 40 mph. We called plantsbymail but nobody answered or returned our call as about what to do. Anyway, we planted them and so far so good. They look great.

    The plants were delivered upside in the box with no fault of the being boxed carefully. They had one little branch broken but they are health and beautiful.

    I am very, very pleased with the purchase of the blue point juniper. The plant looked healthy and remains healthy. Love the way the sender packed it, it kept the plant secured and unharmed. It really shows the vendor’s commitment to please their buyers.

    Gorgeous Blue Point Juniper!!! I’m glad to find something that can deal with our heat in Zone 8 NC!

    Ordered 2 blue point junipers. They arrived quickly and look healthy. I just wish they were shaped better. They’re not as well formed/tapered as the ones in the picture. Instead, the tops are flattened off and a bit lopsided. I’ll try pruning them into the appropriate shape.

    Looks great right out of the box! The blue-green foliage is beautiful and because its an evergreen we can enjpy it all year long. I love the upright Christmas tree shape.

    I love my blue points. I have many rounded shrubs and adding the junipers put interest in my garden, both texturally and shape. They are just a bit prickly until you figure out the best way to touch them. Mine arrived healthy and vigorous and I’m considering getting more to place around the yards.
