It looks amazing. I possibly will order more in the fall.
We love these Junipers!
I chose these junipers for our home based on the beautiful blue/silver color and the slender 2-3ft width. We've got them lined along our side entry garage and flanking our front step. The color is gorgeous year round, and the slender shape makes them low maintenance and safe for close to the house. They were a little small when I got them, but don't be fooled, these were totally worth the wait to watch grow! The front of our house is relatively shaded (full sun all day out back), but these junipers have had no problem establishing good roots and growing tall!
The 6 saplings that arrived are extremely small, measuring just 2 feet from the bottom of the pot. These "trees" look like bare sticks. Very unsatisfied. 50 dollars per each tree is an exorbitant price for these saplings.
We do guarantee the height on these trees. Please send us some photos so we can help resolve this issue!
Didn't work for us
Shipping and delivery were great. These just didn't work for my zone (7b) and area I put them, it was way too windy & they sat in mostly shade. I just didn't like the way the ended up looking, brown & very thin. I just took all 3 out. However this company is great to work with! I've had several orders from them, and all plants were healthy looking upon arrival.
I was shocked by what I received
I ordered seven Nellie R Stevens Holly bushes 2-3 ft tall as well as 3 of these Skyrocket Junipers in the 2-3 ft tall range (50.00 each). The Nellie Holly looked wonderful, the skyrockets.... not so much. The tips were brown, and they were so small that I could not believe they are charging 50.00 for each tree. I called and asked for a refund due to the browning as well as the tree is nothing more than a sapling. I was told no- you can not get a refund even with the warranty you purchased. I want to save others from paying this price for a twig when you can go to your local nursery and get a much better product at the same price (which is what we did). I will never order from here again due to the exorbitant 150.00 I spent on twigs plus another 50.00 for the warranty. It will not allow me to upload a picture, but I have pictures to back up this claim. saplings.jpg

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Juniper Skyrocket in a location that receives partial sun, full sun if possible, to promote faster growth. Soil preference is not an issue with this variety.
Then, dig the hole twice 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 ground. Tamp the ground around the Skyrocket by hand to remove any air pockets that may have formed in the soil.
2. Watering: A thorough watering once a week will help keep the soil properly moist around your Skyrocket Juniper. Water the tree regularly for the first two years of growth (about once or twice weekly) - this will help the tree’s roots system develop and increase the tree’s drought tolerance.
3. Fertilizing: Use a granulated fertilizer specifically formulated for evergreens, and apply once in the early spring in accordance with the package directions.
4. Pruning: Though the Juniper Skyrocket can tolerate pruning, the tree actually looks best when allowed to grow and assume its natural shape.
