Spartan Juniper

The Most Popular Juniper

Height:

The heights we list are the actual size of your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We do not prune evergreen trees for any reason. Evergreen trees typically hold their shape for the life of the tree and do not require any pruning or shearing.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker privacy the first full growing season.

This tough yet attractive Juniper is sure to find a place in your landscape!

The Spartan Juniper is a fast growing, highly durable evergreen with many traits that are quickly increasing its popularity in many parts of the country.

In fact, it's now considered by most growers to be the most popular upright juniper.

Its fantastic tolerance to heat, cold, drought, and salt make it one of the hardiest junipers you can find.

Extremely easy to grow, no matter where you live!

It grows in a columnar shape with very dense branches and reaches a mature height of 15-20 feet, making it a good selection for those desiring a privacy hedge or wind barrier.

While the Spartan grows best in full sun, it easily adapts to partial sun and even partial shade!

Not picky about its growing conditions, this tough Juniper thrives in virtually all soil types and conditions.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Spartan Juniper can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Spartan Juniper


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Spartan Juniper.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Spartan Juniper gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Spartan Juniper again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

By: Paul
I'm very happy with these trees. I just stuck it in the ground and forgot it. It looks beautiful with no effort on my part. It stands up to all kinds of weather, including blizzard, hurricane, dog days of summer, tornado and earthquake, not kidding! It's cover with decorative tiny blue berries that the birds love.

How does the leyland cypress differ from the spartan juniper?

How far from structures should this tree be planted?
divy30 on Jul 8, 2014
Best Answer: Spartan Junipers can get quite large, as you can see in the photo at top right hand corner. My husband and I think that probably eight feet would be adequate (providing you have that much space of course). Otherwise, as in our case, we will eventually be pruning/shaping them to fit the site location, as we don't have that much room where we planted ours. Good luck and happy planting of your Spartans.

We are in zone 5 (Denver area), and we get a strong afternoon sun. Will these trees withstand that? Also, what is the amount of growth per year, on average?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
Best Answer: I bought this tree for my brother in Raleigh, NC back on December 15, 2012. I visited him last week and saw the tree and it is doing very well in a sunny area where it's been planted. I can't really speak to the rate of growth because I don't know how big it was when it was shipped to him; however, it appears to be very healthy.

Gary R on Jul 16, 2014
Best Answer: You can buy these items separately. You have to go to their own pages. I've provided you with links to the organic planting mix for the Spartan Juniper and the fertilizer tablets.

We lost a privacy hedge of Spartan Junipers this past winter. A few a showing a small amount of green shoots.. What advice can you give us at this time?
Mary Z on Jun 18, 2014
Best Answer: This depends on your area. You may need to cover your trees with a sheet at night to protect them from frost. Putting hay, mulch or pine straw around the roots helps keep the heat in. If you're in a zone higher than zone 5 I would recommend a cold hardier tree like the Emerald Green Thuja.
