Whether as a wind screen, privacy border or accent, a Blue Point juniper tree makes a majestic addition to any landscape. Blue Point junipers can grow as tall as 14 feet, with a pyramidal shape and dense, glossy, blue-green foliage.
Plant Blue Point juniper in full sun to partial shade, and well-drained soil. Through the first year of growth, you’ll want to water this evergreen about twice a week. You can then drop down to once a week—and later, only during a drought—as the plant continues to grow a foot or more per year. Also, be sure to give a Blue Point juniper at least 4 feet of space to grow outward.
