Juniperus Scopulorum (Blue Arrow Juniper, Virginia Juniper, Rocky Mountain)
Product Code: 2370
Works well as a standalone specimen plant to give your garden texture and colour.
The Blue Arrow Juniper is famous for its aquamarine-coloured foliage which grows very densely to create a bold pointed-oval. 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 as well as to shorter maximum heights. The Blue Arrow’s dynamic upward point and cool blue leaves will create an exciting modern 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. Conifers get their name from the “cones” that they produce – which come in all shapes and sizes. Conifer leaves are evergreen and will either be needle-shaped or scale-like.
