Juniper Blue Point Spiral


Description: The Blue Point Spiral is a striking evergreen shrub with a distinctive spiral form, making it an eye-catching addition to landscapes. It features dense, blue-green foliage that retains its color throughout the year, providing year-round interest. The foliage has a fine texture and a slightly prickly feel. This cultivar is often trained into a spiral shape during its growth, creating a sculptural and formal appearance. In spring, it may produce inconspicuous flowers followed by small blue berries, adding further ornamental value.

Size: The size of the Blue Point Spiral can vary depending on its age and the conditions in which it's grown. Typically, it reaches a height of 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 meters) with a width of 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 meters) when mature. However, with regular pruning and maintenance, it can be kept smaller or shaped to fit specific spaces in the landscape.

Best Growing Zones: The Blue Point Spiral is best suited to USDA hardiness zones 4 through 9. It thrives in temperate climates with cold winters and warm summers. This cultivar prefers full sun exposure, although it can tolerate partial shade. It is relatively adaptable to different soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soil, as long as it is well-drained. It is also tolerant of urban pollution and coastal conditions.

Soil Requirements: Blue Point Spiral Juniper prefers well-drained soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level. It can tolerate a variety of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soil, as long as it is well-drained. Amending the soil with organic matter, such as compost or peat moss, can improve soil fertility and drainage, promoting healthy growth and development.

Maintenance: Blue Point Spiral Juniper is relatively low-maintenance once established. It requires regular watering, particularly during dry periods, to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Pruning is generally not necessary for this cultivar, but it can be pruned as needed to maintain its spiral shape or remove any dead, damaged, or overgrown branches. Fertilization is typically not required, as Blue Point Spiral is relatively tolerant of poor soil conditions.
