Description

Juniperus scopulorum ‘Wichita Blue’

The Wichita Blue Juniper is a medium sized Juniper with full foliage which is a great accent tree or used as a privacy screen – while still being short enough not to interfere with power lines.  This tree has silvery blue foliage which stands out all year long with no bronzing or fading – for a lifetime of nearly 70 years!  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.

Hardy to -40°F
Maximum Elevation: 8,500 Feet
