Juniperus scopulorum ‘Skyrocket’
The Skyrocket Juniper is a great tree for Colorado and completely maintenance free! This tree is ideal for areas where height is wanted, but you don’t want to sacrifice the ground space for a wide based tree. This tree is very fast growing at roughly 1 foot per year and will reach mature height in roughly 10 years. This tree is dusty green-blue and its color remains all year without browning or fading.
This is THE Arbor Advisor recommended evergreen for narrow spaces – as it is drought resistant, highly adaptable, pest free, fast growing, and beautiful tree which does not require any pruning. Just plant it in full sun and watch it grow. This tree is best used in urban gardens, as a privacy screen, or narrow spaces.
This tree will reach a mature height of 15 feet, and 3-4 feet wide.
Hardy to -30°F
