Blue Star is a low maintenance, small evergreen accent that works great among hardscapes and border gardens. The steel blue foliage of Blue Star keeps a tidy mound like shape with new growth showing up in small star-like spiky cones.

Blue Star Juniper will do well in full sun to part shade, but we recommend at least 4 hours of direct sunlight for best performance. They will grow slowly topping out around 2 feet in width and 18 inches in height. They are virtually maintenance free if grown in well drained soil and not crowded by the foliage of other plants.

General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.

Blue Star Juniper

Junipers are fairly easy to care for, make sure the site is well drained onto the dry side. Avoid areas where dogs will urinate or salt will be applied as this will create brown spots on the tree. Junipers are suceptible to spider mites, if a tree appears to be struggling hold a white sheet of paper under some branches and gently shake. Small moving dots are spider mites, treat with a drenching application of insecticidal soap. Apply slow release fertilizer and refresh yearly - junpiers grow slowly, but still need basic nutrients.
