Juniperus Squamata

'Blue Star'
Blue Scaly-leaved Nepal Juniper
Attractive, round, dense, globe shaped with very compact branches. Foliage bright steel-blue, retained year round. Plant as a specimen or on large rockeries. Ideal for growing in containers for patio or terrace use. Good in maritime areas.

Height and spread in 10 years: 50cm x 50cm (18in x 18in). Will continue to grow larger.

Position: Best in full sun to very light shade on a wide range of soil conditions, except extremely dry or wet. Hardy.

Planting: Soak the root-ball before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertilizer with infill soil. Water regularly until established.

Plant Care: Do not allow to dry out in drought conditions. Remove snow from foliage as soon as possible to prevent breakage of branches. Reduce last year's growth by approximately 50% in Spring to encourage branching. Feed with a liquid fertilizer in late Spring.
