Wichita Blue Juniper features stunning silver-blue foliage that is thick and full, so we like to plant them as a beautiful privacy hedge to block unwanted views in style! They are also known by their botanical name, Juniperus scopulorum 'Wichita Blue,' and these evergreen conifers are native to the Rocky Mountains from Alberta to Texas. We love their upright pyramidal form and the fact that their beautiful silvery-blue colors stay vibrant all year long, even in winter time, makes it a stand out ornamental tree for any landscape! This plant is the right choice for anyone that desires a fast-growing colorful hedge, screen or windbreak that can survive all kinds of weather and still look attractive! Use them along fence lines or as a rugged and reliable plant for use as an effective windbreak.
We like to give the Wichita Blue Juniper lots of space and plant them in a spot that receives plenty of full sun exposure. People love this water-wise plant for its looks as well as its low-maintenance features. Once established, these junipers require little to moderate water and benefit from fertilizer before the new growth begins in the spring. Be sure to pick up the ideal fertilizers for treating Houston’s dense soil at any of our nurseries throughout the area.
Wichita Blue Juniper offers a broad range of landscape uses, from permanent hedge for borders to stunning lawn specimen. Visit any of our nurseries or give us a call for additional guidance on where to plant one of these beautiful plants!
