Special Attributes

One of our favorite upright Junipers, Iowa is an attractive evergreen conifer that grows naturally in a conical form with no pruning necessary. As conifers go, it is considered fast growing with attractive blue-sage green foliage that leans heavily to the blue! With no pruning Iowa presents a unique and noticeable growth habit with its outer branchlets leaning slightly away from the main form. Combine this wonderful feature with the blue foliage and Iowa is one handsome guy!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 10 to 12 feet tall by 4 to 5 feet wide at maturity, with dense foliage you can't see through, the Iowa Juniper is idea for use as a specimen, in groupings, or for a dense privacy hedge or screen in sunny landscape borders. Also a very nice as a corner plant or espalier in home foundation plantings. It shears well so makes for the perfect outdoor Christmas tree! A fine addition to the conifer garden, rock garden and Xeriscape (low water needs).
