Juniperus scopulorum 'Moonglow'
conical pyramidal juniper with intense bluish-gray-green foliage. Color
so intense it almost glows - one of our favorites!!! Excellent as an
accent plant, or planted as a screen or fence border. Holds good color
through the winter with very, very minimal bronzing.
Does especially well in the plains states of the midwest, as well as in the Rocky Mountain regions.

Diseases / Insects:
Phomopsis blight, canker, as well as cedar apple rust have all been
noted to appear on this variety. Many J. scopulorum cultivars seem to
have some trouble in dealing with high heat & humidity, as well as
high night time temperatures of the southeast.
Fertilization / Feeding: For maximum health & color, we highly recommend POOPeas Organic Fertilizer & Soil Amendment .
However, either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or
granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or
10 - 10 - 10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring,
and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers
during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting.
POOPeas may be used at anytime.
