Product Code: JUNMAN1

Juniperus virginiana 'Manhattan Blue'
Overall Description
  Compact, dense growth in a rather narrow, pyramidal form. Nice bluish/green foliage that turns a dark purplish color in the winter. An uncommon variety to say the least, this juniper has many uses. Anything from border / privacy screens, individual specimen plantings, or looks wonderful when grouped together in group plantings. Very hardy, and is not real picky about soil conditions - will accept a wide variety of planting locations. Loves full sun, but can take a little bit of shade.
  Fairly fast growth rate will sometimes require that young trees are staked for the first couple years or so, as the height of this variety can sometimes outgrow the root system's ability to keep young trees good & anchored in locations where they may be exposed to occasional high winds.
 Plant Facts & Specifications
Mature Height: 12-16 ft
Mature Width:  6-7 ft
Growth rate: Moderate to fast ( 12"-20" avg per year )
Hardiness Zones:  3-9 ( if unsure of your zone, please use zone finder below )
Sun Exposure: Full sun preferred, but will tolerate some partial shade as well. Best foliage density, growth rate, and color in full sun.
Soil Preference: Average to slightly acidic & sandy - well drained. Will adapt to a fairly wide range of soil types. Adequate drainage is a must though.
Foliage Color & Texture: Awl shaped foliage with very nice color & average texture. Winter coloration is darker than the rest of year, giving some seasonal interest.

Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts: Male clone - no cones or berries to be expected on this variety.
Diseases / Insects: Rather trouble free juniper - but as with most all J. virginiana cultivars, both bagworms and cedar apple rust can occasionally occur. Inspect specimens yearly as a precaution.

Fertilization / Feeding:
Either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular ( Holly Tone is excellent ). Other granular types with 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio is acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting.
