The Wichita Blue Juniper is a medium-sized tree with silvery blue foliage that stands out all year long with no bronzing or fading—for a lifetime of nearly 70 years! A great accent tree or privacy screen, it's short enough not to interfere with power lines. Birds love the tree for its tiny silver blue berries that persist in the summer and winter. This tree grows relatively fast at 6-12 inches per year.
At 10 years old it will be roughly 15 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide and keeps growing to eventually reach 15-25 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide. If using as a screen, plant 4 to 6 feet apart and 6-8 feet from a fence or drive to avoid overgrowth. This tree can be pruned to meet a particular height or shape.
This tree is very drought tolerant, cold hearty, and adaptable to most soil types.
