Tough & Versatile Columnar Evergreen

Spiny Greek Juniper is an evergreen that grows in a dense, conical form. Plant these for a dramatic accent next to your front entrance, or use several as a stately hedge or windbreak.

Your Spiny Greek Juniper is a combination of elegance and brawn. The vertical branching of its blue-tinted, sage-green foliage sweeps upward to create a tall, stately evergreen that’s perfect for accent or border. It can be shaped into a variety of designs or left to grow naturally tall and imposing.

Spiny Greek Juniper’s spunky elegance is balanced by its vigorous spirit. Its tough, needle-like foliage is dense and stiff to the touch, with a comparable hardiness that makes it an easy choice for the home gardener.

Spiny Greek Juniper will grow up to 20 feet in height with up to a 15-foot spread. It has a dense nature and columnar habit for a tight, compact appearance in the landscape. Spiny Green Juniper is quite a tough evergreen, with few insect or disease problems.

It requires little or no care and is very hardy in general. It’s amenable to shaping, and some love it for Bonsai or in locations where some ornamental pruning is desired. Although evergreen in nature, the foliage can assume a slight bronze tint where winters are cold.

With so many choices in evergreens it can be difficult to choose just one. However, Spiny Greek Juniper is certainly an easy choice for something hardy, carefree and versatile. Why not try one today!
