Junipers are extremely easy to grow evergreen conifers. Apart from occasional watering in their first year they need nothing at all. Rocky Mountains juniper comes from the USA and Canada where it makes large forests such as spruce in our climate. It differs from other juniper species in certain aspects which are not important to know if you are not a botanist eager to learn every little detail. We concentrate on differences in varieties which bring extra features to our gardens.

Blue Arrow juniper is as thin as a supermodel. This conifer has a truly slim, columnar habit and attractive blue-green to almost silvery blue colour. It is often compared to another juniper variety called Skyrocket against which it has a big advantage – Blue Arrow has shorter branches that do not bend under the weight of fresh snow. The whole plant has a typical fragrance, especially when you crush the foliage.

Junipers will grow in almost any reasonably drained soil of any pH. Once established it needs no maintenance or watering. In fact it can take long periods of droughts and strong winds. Pruning, if necessary, can be made in early spring or late summer. Fully hardy to about -40°C (USDA zone 3).
