Distinctive Fast Growing Juniper

Versatile Evergreen
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 well as a single specimen, in foundation plantings, as a windbreak or privacy screen. Although it 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. Plant yours along fences or around the foundation of your home. 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.

Unique Juniper
This fast-growing, coniferous tree 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.

Easy to Grow
This Juniper was named "Hollywood" because you'll see it planted almost everywhere in Los Angeles, California. Aside from its name and distinctive facade, other star qualities are its ease-of-care and near-indestructible fortitude.  It thrives in full sun, and it grows best in well-drained soil. These trees require minimal water and attention once established. As 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 is cold-hardy to -10°F.

The Fast Growing Trees Difference
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.

Whoops, they don't like containers!
I bought three of these last year to put in containers on my deck as a wind screen. They were beautiful last year and even survived a cold PA winter. Then spring came and they are dying! As best I can tell, we've had alot of rain (50% more than usual), and apparently their roots don't like moist soil. Note, it says they like "well-drained" soil in the description. See picture which was taken mid-late May. I will be taking these out and will try a skyrocket juniper next time which are known to be good for containers,

Others were amazed at how healthy my two junipers look, and surprised that I purchased them on line. They were nicely potted and arrived quickly. They look very natural flanking my beach cottage. Once they are established, they should grow quickly.

Thank you, and I won’t hesitate to order from you again.

eh, just ok
Bought 8 of these 2 years ago. They've grown about a foot and a half in 2 years, and all have survived in NJ near the coast. Disappointed with the growth rate. They are all just one shoot/ trunk. Only 1 has characteristically split/ more than 1 shoot

Overall good, but rather small
The tree itself is good, although I was hoping it would be larger. If it grows quickly, we are in good shape. It arrived well packaged and in just a couple of days.
It's about 1 1/2 to 2 foot tall

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Hollywood Juniper

Hollywood Juniper Planting Diretions

The Hollywood Juniper (Juniperus chinensis Torulosa or Kaizuka) can grow anywhere but the coldest of climates. This full sun loving, unusually shaped evergreen will be the talk of your landscape with its twists and turns. Best suited for USDA growing zones 5-9, it even performs well in coastal environments as it is salt and wind tolerant. This moderately growing, drought tolerant plant reaches an overall size of 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide but can be pruned and shaped to almost any size. They make great topiary specimens as they are easily shaped and will maintain that shape without extreme amounts of pruning.

Location: Plant your Juniper in a location that receives partial sun, full sun if possible to promote faster growth. Soil preference is not an issue with this variety, so long as the soil is not continuously wet.

Planting Instructions:
1) Choose a location that gets six hours or more of direct sun each day.
2) Dig the hole three times the width of the root ball and deep enough for the soil line around the trunk of the tree so that it sits even with the surface of the surrounding soil.
3) If the soil is clay and doesn’t drain well, place a layer of gravel at the base of the hole. Next, mix in a large amount of gravel with the soil adding compost and mix it into the soil you removed to dig the hole.
4) Carefully loosen the roots by hand around the bottom of the tree, place into the hole and fill it back in with the soil and compost mix.
5) Tamp the ground around the by hand to remove any air pockets that may have formed in the soil and water. Mulching the area will assist in soil moisture retention.

Watering: A thorough watering once a week will help keep the soil properly moist. Water the tree regularly for the first two years of growth. This will help the tree’s roots system develop and increase the tree’s drought tolerance. Spread a good layer of mulch around the base of the tree to keep weeds back and cut back on the need to water as often.

Pruning: Though they can tolerate pruning, the tree actually looks best when allowed to grow and assume its natural shape.

Fertilization: Use a granulated fertilizer specifically formulated for evergreens. Apply once in the early spring in accordance with the package directions.

Pests: Insects commonly known to pester the tree include bag worm caterpillars, juniper scale, juniper web worm and spider mites. For bag worm and web worm control, simply inspect the tree and remove by hand when present. Insecticides typically don’t work to control these pests. For scale, a systemic insecticide can be applied during the growing season. In the instance of mites, treat with a miticide.

I had a Hollywood Twist Juniper in a previous Location here in Bradenton and we just loved it. It did very well all year round. It needed very little care and looked gorgeous all the time, that in a full sun exposure. It was very healthy.

I am creating a living barrier at the edge of my property line that will provide privacy while also being interesting to the eye. I chose this species for its drought tolerance, but also because it's twisting motion is unusual and visually pleasing.

Andrew S on May 14, 2018
How close to a foundation of a driveway or house can I plant a Hollywood Juniper that will grow to 15 - 20 feet tall? I'm concerned about roots damaging the foundation as the juniper establishes itself.
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Hollywood Juniper can be planted very close to structures. They don't have invasive roots, but I'd say planted it about 5 feet away. The foliage can get wide. If you plan on pruning your tree back though it will be alright to plant it closer.
How well would this do in part shade? I need a privacy screen under a walnut tree (I have read that Junipers can grow under walnuts). It will get early morning and late afternoon sun. Any other suggestions?
cynthia l on Nov 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I placed mine on the north side of my home where there is afternoon shade and against a storage building where there is sun from noon until sunset. Both have done well.
how far apart to plant 4 of these Trees in a row and how many trees will the planting mix serve.?
Richard R on Sep 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hollywood Junipers can be planted as close as 5 feet apart and our planting mix serves two trees. Each tree needs half a bag.
When is it best to plant it?
Ann G on Sep 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine late in August. Make sure the hole is deep and round enough so the roots have room to expand. I made sure it was watered and then mulched in in late fall. They are going great and I love them. Good Luck!
How much can I expect this to grow in a year?
Jamie1421 on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They grow 1-2 feet per year.
i have to hollywood trees how often to i water them, i live in southern new mexico where is very hot and dry?
amy v on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Water your juniper twice a week during its first month; afterwards it will need to be watered regularly for the first couple months after planting. During periods of extended drought increase your watering habit to once every week or two.
