The Gray Gleam Juniper is an upright, pyramid-shaped evergreen tree native to Colorado. This tree has silvery-gray needles with a dense branching habit. The Gray Gleam Juniper is a great choice for privacy screens or wind protection. This tree is extremely drought tolerant, low maintenance, and cold hearty. Pruning is not necessary but if done at all it's best done in the winter in between extreme cold and extremely hot weather swings to avoid burnout spots.
The Gray Gleam Juniper will grow to be about 15 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. This tree also works well as a specimen tree in lawns or with other groundcovers as an accent tree. Its height makes it a good choice for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more. Plant in full sun or mostly sun area.
