Description:

A columnar evergreen shrub maintained in a spiral shape; sharp needle-like deep green foliage and interesting blue berries, a great accent in the garden or home landscape; best in full sun

Ornamental Features

Spartan Juniper (spiral) has emerald green foliage. The scale-like leaves remain emerald green throughout the winter. The flowers are not ornamentally significant. It produces powder blue berries from late spring to late winter.

Landscape Attributes

Spartan Juniper (spiral) is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a narrowly upright and columnar growth habit. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Spartan Juniper (spiral) is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Vertical Accent
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Spartan Juniper (spiral) will grow to be about 10 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
