Hollywood Juniper is a coniferous, evergreen shrub that reaches a height of 15 feet and a width of 10 feet. It is drought-, wind-, cold-, and salt-tolerant. The Hollywood Juniper grows best in Zones 5-9. Plant it in well-drained soil in full sun. It works equally well as a single specimen, in foundation plantings, as a windbreak or privacy screen.
Considered a fast-growing, coniferous shrub or small tree, Hollywood Juniper can reach a height of 15 feet and a width of 10 feet. It is considered one of the most artistic of the evergreens because of its naturally-twisted, upright-spiraling branches. This dark bluish-green shrub presents a striking contrast against light-colored backgrounds. Its artsy appearance makes a bold statement in any garden design.
The Hollywood Juniper thrives in full sun, and it grows best in well-drained soil. Drought-tolerant, it requires minimal water and attention once it is established, making it very easy to care for. It is among the most disease- and pest-resistant of all evergreens.
This "Jewel of the Junipers" is salt-tolerant and wind-tolerant, making it a good choice for coastal locations. It grows best in Growing Zones 5-9, and it is cold-hardy to -20°F.
You may be interested in this added benefit to hold your interest and that of your guests – Hollywood Juniper attracts birds, which enjoy nesting in its branches and eating its blue berries in winter. This makes it an eco-friendly choice for conservationists as well.
Although the Hollywood Juniper can reach a large height and breadth relatively rapidly, you can always prune it to keep it smaller. Pruning is sometimes done to make it fit into smaller spaces.
Hollywood Juniper is often planted along fences or around the foundation of homes. Steer clear of planting it beneath overhangs which might drop a steady stream of water or snow onto the Juniper, or in other oft-flooded areas, as it does not do well in wet soil.
This coniferous evergreen makes an interesting focal point in the center of a garden, but it also works nicely as a privacy screen or windbreak.
This Juniper was named "Hollywood" because you'll see it planted almost everywhere in Los Angeles, California. Aside from its name and unique appearance, other star qualities are its ease-of-care and near-indestructible fortitude.
As with all our plants, shrubs, and trees, when you order from Fast Growing Trees Nursery, you will receive a healthy, container-grown shrub, ready to plant, with a well-developed root system. We do not sell bare-root shrubs as we have found that it shocks the plant to remove it from the ground, as well as destroys many of the fine roots necessary for optimum growth. Rest assured when you order from us, your Hollywood Juniper will have its best start possible.
We urge you to order this social magnet while you can, as our inventory tends to sell out quickly!
