Product Overview

The Spartan Juniper is a regal evergreen that features a naturally pyramidal growth habit, no pruning required. The foliage is dark green and quite dense, which is why it's frequently used as a topiary. This fast-growing juniper maxes out around 15 ft. Tall and 3 ft. to 5 ft. W. Therefore, it's an ideal candidate for usage as a low-maintenance privacy screen. Furthermore, it's notably tolerant of heat and drought, as well as cold. This Juniper is hardy from USDA Zones 4 zone to 9 zone and requires Full Sun to grow properly. It's tolerant of most soils, as long as it has good drainage. Water your new plantings 2- times to 3-times during the first growing season, depending upon the weather. These Spartan Junipers in a 2.5 qt.

These are little bitty trees. I mistakenly thought they were in 2.5 gal pots, instead of the 2.5 quart pots. But they are healthy and hopefully will grow quickly. Great packaging and shipping. Thanks so much.
