Juniperus Virginiana Sky Rocket 150/175cm 25 Litre: Juniperus 'Skyrocket', commonly known as Skyrocket juniper, is a tall and narrow evergreen shrub or tree that is prized for its distinctive columnar shape. It is a cultivar of the Juniperus scopulorum species.

The Skyrocket juniper has a dense and upright growth habit, reaching a height of 5 to 6 metres and spreading only 1/1.5 metres feet wide. Its compact form and narrow silhouette make it an excellent choice for small gardens or tight spaces where vertical interest is desired.

The foliage of the Skyrocket juniper is needle-like and has a vibrant blue-green colour. The needles are arranged in overlapping scales, giving the plant a textured appearance. This evergreen nature ensures that the tree remains visually appealing throughout the year.

One of the main advantages of the Skyrocket juniper is its ability to withstand harsh conditions. It is highly drought-tolerant and can thrive in a variety of soil types, including poor and rocky soils. It also exhibits good resistance to diseases and pests.

This juniper cultivar requires full sun exposure to maintain its compact shape and vibrant foliage. It is a low-maintenance plant that typically does not require pruning, except for occasional shaping if desired.

The Skyrocket juniper is often used as a vertical accent in landscapes, adding a touch of elegance and height to garden designs. It can be planted as a standalone specimen or in groups to create a striking visual effect. Additionally, its narrow form makes it suitable for use as a privacy screen or windbreak.

Juniperus 'Skyrocket' is a popular cultivar of Juniperus scopulorum known for its tall and slender growth habit, blue-green foliage, and adaptability to various growing conditions. Its unique columnar shape and low-maintenance nature make it a versatile and attractive choice for landscaping projects
