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.

It's Easy to Plant your Spartan Juniper

Specific Directions for Spartan Juniper
Plant your Spartan Juniper in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. While Spartan Junipers prefer full sun they can tolerate shade. Make sure that your Spartan Juniper doesn't sit in a low area that collects standing water. For a privacy screen plant your Spartan Junipers about three feet apart.

Spartan Junipers will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. After your Spartan Juniper is established rain water will provide enough moisture. Spartan Junipers are very drought tolerant and only need extra water during prolonged dry spells.

Early every Spring and Fall fertilize your Spartan Juniper with a well balanced all purpose fertilizer. We recommend using formula 10-10-10.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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.

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.

Junipers Are Hearty!
The 10 junipers I received and transplanted in Feb. (in Dallas) have already grown 14" to 16" each! Just transplant them, and ensure they get water at least once per week if it doesn't rain, and they will thrive. I also bought some fertilizer spikes for evergreen trees and I'm sure they have helped. I highly recommend buying junipers from Fast Growing Trees!

spartan juniper
I planted 20 baby spartan junipers in the fist week of April here in Colorado Springs . it snowed several times after i planted them. They were small about an average of 12 inches. It is now late July and they have already almost doubled in height and are very full and robust . Now they are really starting to do well and many of them grew a full 2 inches in the past week/ I would not be surprised if they reach 3 feet before winter . I am very happy with my purchase .thank you

Live in Las Cruces, NM, and considering the Spartan Juniper to use as a sun block and for privacy at back wall which faces West. Would like to limit overall height to 10-12ft, but prefer maximum fullness. Can you recommend this tree? How far apart should they be planted for maximum density?

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.

Christine F on May 12, 2015
Best Answer: Not sure I can answer your question. My spartan juniper is 1/3 brown:::but I live in Florida and it hasn't grown much since I planted and we hot lots of hot temps. I wouldn't give up on it yet. Keep it watered very well and fertilize away from the base of the tree. Kiddingly, talk to it, I do and I tell it I need it for shelter for the birds.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.
