Product Description

The Most Popular Juniper

Why Spartan Junipers?

The tough yet attractive Spartan Juniper is a fast-growing, highly durable evergreen. In fact, it's now considered by most growers to be the most popular upright juniper on the market.

Plus, the Spartan’s fantastic tolerance to heat, cold, drought, and salt make it one of the hardiest junipers you can find. That means it’s extremely easy to grow, no matter where you live, especially since it thrives in virtually all soil types.

And it grows in a columnar shape with very dense branches, making it a good selection for those desiring a privacy hedge or wind barrier. So, whether you plant it along streets, fences or even as a standalone, it thrives without effort.

Why is Better

But the best part about our Spartan Juniper is that we’ve planted, grown and shipped it with care. That means you’ll get an intact, healthy well-developed root system, rather than a bare-root plant, for best results. We’ve done the extra work so that you get an effortless plant.

Get good looks, strong growth and effortless care – it’s just a click away with our Spartan Juniper. Get your own today, before it’s gone!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: The ideal planting area should receive direct sunlight for most of the day with well-draining soil (adding rocks and gravel is a good way to ensure proper drainage). Junipers will also live in alkaline, acidic or mineral lacking soil, making them one tough tree to add to your landscape!

The soil should be thoroughly mulched, watered and weeded prior to planting. Dig a planting hole for your Juniper that’s twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as the depth of the root ball. Gently loosen the roots by untangling them at the edge of the root ball with your fingers and place your juniper in the hole. The top of the root ball should be level with the surrounding soil. Fill your hole by packing the amended soil around the root ball and gently tamp the soil down to get rid of any air pockets.

Once your tree is upright and firmly planted, spread mulch around its base, and then water the soil.

2. Watering: Water your Juniper twice a week during its first month; after, 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.

3. Fertilizing: You can give younger Juniper Trees some fertilizer once a year during the fall season to encourage healthy growth. More mature trees usually only need to be fed once every 2 to 3 years. It is best to apply a slow-release, organic granular formula such as 12-4-8 or 16-4-8 fertilizer into the soil.

4. Pruning: The best time to prune your Juniper is in the late winter to early spring. Cut your new growth back roughly halfway, as this facilitates healthy new growth and helps with the shaping of the tree to keep it attractive. Remove branches growing the wrong direction and any dead branches with hand pruners.

Great company

My order arrived fast and packaged well. Trees looked nice and healthy. 1 out of 10 started turning brown after about a week, but I sent an email to the company and within a hour a new tree was shipped. Very satisfied and will definitely order again.

Very nice experience.

Ordered trees June 28th delivered to New Jersey July 7th and in the ground July 8th. Probably would have been sooner but there was a 4th of July holiday that held up delivery. Plants were green and root ball moist, no brown branches. Great service and will recommend.

Great first time purchase.

Balance Needed something to line my driveway for privacy and I found the website. I chose Spartan Juniper due to their deer resistance and ordered eleven on June 28th and they were received and planted by July 8. The 3 to 4 ft trees were received in great shape and would have been received earlier but there was a 3 day 4th of July weekend . I pre dug the holes which expedited the process but this was done in 90 degree New Jersey heat by an 81 year old guy. Glad I found the website and I will order again the whole service was great. Would recommend.

I love my Spartan Junipers

They came in easy to remove and plant cartons. They were in great shape, fully green, no brown spots. I ordered 13 junipers Thankfully I dug out the planting holes several days before they arrived such that I had them in the ground within a few hours. I just can’t wait until they get taller and fill in I’m looking forward to ordering more plants in the near future
