Silvery-Blue, Adaptable, and Hardy Juniper
Why Moonglow Junipers?
The Moonglow Juniper is as enchanting as its name. Its mesmerizing color, adaptability and hardiness make it an incredibly versatile tree that will light up any space in your garden.
In fact, its dazzling blue, shiny foliage reflects the glow of moonlight in a silvery display. And the Moonglow is totally adaptable, with a dense growth habit and easily trained branches that make it an excellent protective barrier.
Even better? It doesn't shed its needles or produce any litter at all, so deer stay away. Through every season, your Moonglow Juniper will look exactly the same: Gorgeous Rocky Mountain pyramidal shape, cool, silvery needles on dense upward-forming branches, and healthy growth.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Moonglow Juniper in well-draining soil and full sun (about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily). Place in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. There's no need to amend the soil, but do add a thick layer of mulch around the base of the tree for pest and weed prevention.
2. Watering: Make sure your Moonglow Juniper receives at least one watering each week during its first 2 years. Rain is usually enough to keep it hydrated, but you'll need to water the establishing tree if you experience a period of drought. After it's established, there's no need to water your Juniper.
3. Pruning: Prune dead or diseased branches as needed. You can perform additional pruning for shape and size if desired. Keep an eye out for caterpillars and remove any branches that have been affected by them. Re-mulch with organic mulch every spring, and cover your tree during periods of heavy ice lasting more than 2 days.
