Tall, Strong, and Evergreen: The Spartan Juniper
THIS IS SPARTA! Well, Spartan Juniper (Juniperus chinensis 'Spartan'), that is. But this tall, strong juniper performs as reliably as a Spartan warrior. This handsome shrub grows quickly and evenly, making for an attractive and stately privacy screen or hedge.
The Spartan Juniper has soft but dense foliage. Its foliage is deep green and distributed evenly for a healthy and refined style.
Like most soldiers, this Spartan keeps a tidy appearance. The Spartan Juniper naturally maintains a pyramidal form that requires minimal pruning for a more refined appearance. And if you want a topiary to flank your front door, the Spartan Juniper is easy to shape and grows well in containers.
Nothing looks more stunning that evenly spaced Spartan Juniper and they promise to uphold and protect your privacy while they vigorously grow. Plant a line of Spartan Junipers to keep the neighbors from peering into your backyard or to mark your property line in your front yard. This evergreen won't take winters off and if you've been procrastinating and want privacy now, this shrub grows quickly. Plant yours about three to four feet apart for a dense hedge.
The Spartan Juniper also does well as a windbreak or as an accent plant that will add height to your garden planting.
This brilliant plant also features the endurance and strength of a true soldier. It stands tall through the hottest summer days, coldest winter nights, and the driest times of the year. Once established, it only needs to be watered when it's extremely hot and dry out.
Your Spartan Juniper will do best with well-irrigated soil that drains wells which will help prevent root rot. It thrives with medium moisture and full sun.
You don't have to be a landscape artist to achieve a structured yard that looks like it took years of strategy to plan. Some Spartan Junipers will do wonders for your garden if you need height, privacy, or topiary to give your yard stately refinement. Order your fast-growing Spartan Juniper now and enjoy its strong and resilient nature!
