Tamarix Juniper

Juniperus sabina ‘Tamariscifolia’

Evergreen: Juniper (Spreading)

Height: 2′ Width: 5-7′
Sun: Full Sun Zone: 2

Green-blue, feathery foliage on this dense, wide-spreading, mounded evergreen. Tiny ornamental, blue, berries. Shade tolerant, dependable evergreen. Great low-maintenance groundcover, border/foundation plant, or used for mass plantings and slope stabilization. Prefers moist, well-drained soil and is drought and Chinook tolerant once established; does not do well in standing water. Water regularly while establishing because they have a shallow root system. Benefits from extra water in fall to reduce damage from winter drying. Fertilize in spring with a good compost or all purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges. Little pruning needed: new growth can be tipped back lightly while actively growing in late spring/early summer to encourage more dense, tidy growth: do not to cut too far back into woody undergrowth (past where there is no green growth) as foliage will not regrow there. To correct shape, prune side branches in late winter/early spring before new growth emerges. Severe pruning is not recommended; dead branches can be pruned anytime.

Available in select potted sizes.
