Juniperus Scopulorum 'Skyrocket' 20 Litre 130-140cm: Often referred to as Rocky Mountain Juniper, or Juniper Skyrocket, Skyrocket is relatively slow growing, hence genuine plants at reasonable sizes are quite hard to come by. An upright slender Juniperus conifer tree that keeps an elegant slender shape, even at maturity. Colouring is a beautiful steely blue, it is easy to grow and easiliy maintaned. Junipers do better in a sunny position but will tolerate light shade, but this may affect the density of the foliage, at maturity. All soil types from acid through to lime are fine but wet soogy ground must be avoided. Similar in growth habits to Juniperus Scopulorum Blue Arrow, however colouring is quite different, Blue Arrow tending to be green, whilst Sky Rocket a more silvery blue. Sky Rocket is a plant that requires no pruning to keep its slender shape or specialised care. to give the plants a boost in early spring after the dormant period, try adding some slow release fertiliser to the compost.
What to expect: Your Skyrocket Juniper will arrive with an actual plant size of 130-140cm and will be nice and chunky just as you see in the photos, planted in a large 20 litre pot.
