Fast Growing Evergreens - the Junipers


Empire National Nursery has junipers and fast growing trees and shrub plants for home garden landscapingJunipers - for Fast Growth in Dry Climates

Empire National Nursery has fast growing trees and shrub plants for home garden landscaping In the landscape design, two goals often stand out - fast growth and evergreen. Although worthwhile and desirable, the two are often not attainable without some give and take. And then, throughout the south and western states where it is hot and dry, or in the north where some places are cold and drier, what to choose? The Junipers can help fill that space that is hot and dry, or, cold and dry, offering fairly fast growth for screens and windbreaks.

Empire National Nursery has fast growing trees and shrub plants for home garden landscaping That is to say, there are some great fast-growers, but they are typically broadleaf trees which drop their leaves in the fall. The fast growing evergreens, don't grow nearly as fast as the broadleafs, but once they reach the desired size, they are green year-round. Therefore, plant both - the faster growing broadleafs like the Ameri-Willow, poplars, and others, and, some of the faster growing evergreens. The one gives you the instant screening you want, while buying you time for the evergreens to grow to size. Think about it...

The Colorado Blue Spruce is highly desired, but being slow-growers, and availability in larger sizes being rather spendy, there are a few columnar Junipers that can work here as well. Arizona Cypress can offer another fairly fast growing blue evergreen, but they are limited to the warmer zones, and we dont grow them anyways...

The foliage is most similar to the Cypresses, but the difference is that Junipers produce a fleshy berry-like cone, whereas the Cypresses makes a dry woody cone.

Empire National Nursery has fast growing trees and shrub plants for home garden landscaping How to Grow Junipers - There are two keys to Juniper success, 1) full sun, and 2) limited watering. For the hotter climates, full sun is fine, and light shading is beneficial. For cooler climates, full sun is best. As far as water needs, little to no extra in the cooler climates, to some or moderate in the hotter climates is benefical. Do not overwater, thats the biggest cause of problems for the Junipers. Other than that, they are very tolerant of virtually any soil condition, and can grow from Zones 2 to 10.

Empire National Nursery has fast growing trees and shrub plants for home garden landscaping So what is the growth rate for Junipers? Plan on one foot a year. With favorable growing conditions, then maybe 18-24 inches is possible. For an area that otherwise has no choices, this growth rate sounds relatively very good.

Empire National Nursery has fast growing trees and shrub plants for home garden landscaping To use Junipers in the landscape design, they can serve many different functions. Besides the evergreen component of screens and windbreaks, Junipers can be planted as accents to areas where space is limited, or where a different shape or texture is desired. Although we are only offering the six columnar types, with all of the other varieties out, there are ground covers and small shrubs, to large shrubs, and even small tree-form types. Grow them in containers, trim them into shapes and topiary, and Junipers make great bonsai plants.
