Juniperus scopulorum ‘Moonglow’
The Moonglow Juniper is a beautiful evergreen which is native to North America. It makes the Arbor Advisor site as it is highly adaptable, cold hardy down to -50, can handle a variety of soil types, is pest free, and disease resistant. This tree thrives nationally across the central United States including Colorado. It has dazzling blue foliage, and as the name suggests, reflect the moonlight in a silvery display. Unlike other trees which lose their leaves or drop cones, the Moonglow Juniper will look exactly the same all year long with cool, silvery needles on dense upward forming branches. This tree forms a dense growth habit which makes it frequently used as a privacy screen or windbreak. This tree does not shed any needs or produce any litter at all which make it virtually a zero maintenance tree (other than occasional watering, especially during the first few years.)
This tree will naturally grow to 10-15 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide, but can be pruned to remain smaller if so desired. Plant in full sun or partial sun.
Hardy to -50°F
Maximum Elevation: 8,500 ft.
