If you’re interested in spending more time enjoying your yard and less time caring for it, Juniper Trees are a perfect choice. This forgiving variety will reward you with hassle-free greenery for years to come.
And many Juniper Trees have dense foliage as full and green in the depth of winter as in mid-summer, so it’s perfect for places where you want a little coverage all winter long.
Where Do Juniper Trees Grow?
Juniper Trees grow nearly anywhere across the country. Though it is important to determine your growing zone and select the perfect Juniper for your area, most of our Juniper Trees stand up to the elements effortlessly.
How to Plant Juniper Trees
Specific directions will vary, but knowing your growing zone is important. After you’ve determined your growing zone, keep sunlight and watering needs in mind for Juniper Trees. Most will prefer full sun (anywhere from 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and well-drained soil, but make sure you check your tree's specific directions.
Your fertilizing and pruning needs will vary as well, but many of our Junipers do not require pruning.
When you're ready to plant, select an area with well-drained soil, dig a hole large enough to accommodate the tree’s root ball (along with some extra width for mature growth), place your Juniper and back fill the hole. Finish by watering the surrounding soil near your Juniper and mulching to conserve moisture.
When to Plant Juniper Trees
Generally, we recommend planting your Juniper Trees in early spring or in fall. Either season is fine, provided the ground near your Junipers is not frozen.
Also, it's important to keep spacing in mind. Avoid planting your Junipers too closely to sidewalks, structures and power lines, especially if the mature height and width are larger.
