Why Taylor Juniper Trees?
Thick and full, the voluminous yet manageably-sized Taylor Juniper creates the perfect screen for those who don't have enough space for oversized trees. Plus, because of its unique visual interest and rich green foliage, the Taylor Juniper is in a league of its own.
Its columnar silhouette delivers easy growth for driveway borders or height for plant beds. In fact, you can even plant in pots next to your entryway for a pop of color that greets guests and elevates your curb appeal.
Evergreen, long-lived, and deer resistant, the Juniper stands out throughout the year. From its unique foliage to its strong, sturdy growth, the Taylor Juniper is a one-of-a-kind addition to your landscape.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Taylor should be planted in a sunny spot. Full sun is preferred and moist or well-drained soil. If planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes 5 to 6 feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the trees where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
Dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least three times the width. Organic mulches, such as wood chips or pine needles, also help to better soil structure as they decompose. Position the tree into the hole and hold it straight. Begin backfilling the hole, tamping down the soil as you fill to prevent any air pockets from forming.
Finally, water the planting site to completely settle the soil and then mulch around the base. Mulching helps retain your soil's moisture and assists with keeping competitive growth away such as weeds and grasses.
2. Watering: The Taylor is suited to most soil conditions and will happily live anywhere that is not too wet. This shrub is drought tolerant once established and should be monitored for signs of additional watering if necessary. Simply follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system - generally, watering once weekly will suffice.
3. Fertilizing: Taylors need to be fertilized every few years. It's best to fertilize early in the growing season with a well-balanced fertilizer.
4. Pruning: Pruning is only necessary to preserve a trim pyramidal shape, removing a dead branch, or if you want a more formal hedge. Height may also be managed through judicious pruning.
