Juniper - Grey Owl
Airy and Silvery
The Grey Owl Juniper, J. virginiana 'Grey Owl', is a handsome, medium-sized, slightly vase-shaped, vigorous juniper with widely spreading branches and loose, airy, silvery-gray foliage.
This evergreen shrub is similar to Pfitzer Juniper in habit. It matures to 3' high with a width of 5'.
The branch tips sometimes turn purple in winter. Female Grey Owls set abundant berries.
Prune junipers in June after the new growth has time to establish. With most evergreens it is easy to remember "Prune in June".
'Grey Owl' is excellent for use as screen, background, or accent. It withstands a wide variety of soils and growing conditions and very long lived.
It produces attractive silver-blue berries. It is called 'Grey Owl' because it has a grey and ghostly look.
