Skyrocket Juniper 
Juniperus scopulorum  'Skyrocket'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 3a-9b  Find Your Zone



Special Attributes

Add an exclamation point to your landscape with the Skyrocket Juniper, a fast growing evergreen conifer that naturally grows in a narrow columnar form with no pruning necessary. Its attractive and handsome silvery-blue foliage stays true-to-color year round. Skyrocket is one the most narrow of the tall-growing juniper plants. Naturally grows 3 to 4 feet wide but can be sheared occasionally to keep more narrow.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 20 feet tall or more by 3-4 feet wide at maturity, Skyrocket Juniper is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or in straight or staggered rows to form an attractive screen in landscape borders. Also effective to frame corners or fill space between windows in home foundation plantings. A fine addition to conifer gardens, Asian theme gardens and rock gardens.

Spacing:  3 feet for solid hedges and privacy screens;  6 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Skyrocket Juniper is easy to grow in most any average, moist to dry well-drained soil, and full to mostly sun. Constantly soggy or wet soil is problematic. It is a very low maintenance plant and exceptionally drought tolerant when established. No pruning is necessary.
