Juniperus Scopulorum (Blue Arrow Juniper, Virginia Juniper, Rocky Mountain)
Famous for its aquamarine foliage and dense, form-holding shape. Works well as standalone specimen plant to create texture and colour.
Junipers in general are very useful in the garden for their solid colours and for their ability to grow in highly difficult conditions. They grow slower than other conifers and to a shorter height – because of this they only need to be pruned if you are trying to create a specific shape. The Blue Arrow’s dynamic upward point and cool blue leaves will bring energy and a modern feeling to your garden.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements. We often think of them being heavily covered with snow during the winter, but they can look equally as bold and impressive against a bright blue summer sky. The size of conifers can vary from 100cm shrubs to 60m tall trees. In fact even a slow-growing miniature conifer may grow up to 3m (10ft) tall at maturity.
