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 establish deep root systems. During the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week. Afterward, the Blue Point Juniper needs 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.
For a seamless planting, space your Blue Point Juniper 6-8 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 8-10+ feet apart.
