PLANT DESCRIPTIONS & FACTS
Juniperus chinensis 'Spartan'
This juniper variety has a fast growing, dense, narrow columnar growth habit - tapers ever so slightly in width from the base on up to the point. Its foliage is a rich green all year around. Almost could be considered a "green" version of skyrocket juniper, but it is a tad shorter and just a bit wider than skyrocket. No trimming or pruning needed - very hardy, tough plant. FAST GROWING!!!
Works great as a border or privacy screen, also for lining driveways, sidewalks.......or even planting up against buildings & along property lines.

Hardiness Zone Map & Information Page
Full sun preferred, but will tolerate some partial shade as well. Growth rate, and foliage density will both suffer slightly when planted in shady locations.
Average to slightly acidic & sandy - well drained.
Foliage Color & Texture:
foliage color is beautiful dark mint green all year round - no winter discoloration noticed here in East TN. Texture is very similar to that of Torulosa Juniper - not quite as needle like, or prickly as many junipers though. Slightly softer feel to the foliage.
Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts:
Berries - small bluish colored berries commonly seen on more mature specimens
Diseases / Insects:
Rather trouble free juniper variety - however both Phomopsis & Kabatina lights have been observed on specimens if planted in soil with inadequate drainage, or if kept in overly wet conditions for extended periods of time.
3 ft apart recommended for privacy screen / barrier
Deer Resistance Rating:
Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 -
- 5 - 6 -
- 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance
Fertilization / Feeding:
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend
for use with all of evergreen species. 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.
may be used at anytime.
Additional Features & Characteristics:
Spartan Juniper has shown itself to be exceptionally drought tolerant, and have a fairly low water requirement once established.
