The Twisting Juniper Torulosa Tree Will Add a Whimsical Look to Your Garden

The Juniper Torulosa Tree is eye-catching and looks both elegant and whimsical at the same time. Each branch looks like a twisting spike.

The tree is fairly narrow but has a spreading growth habit, so some branches may grow away from the others, adding to the tree's artistic and whimsical look. If you’re looking for a unique addition to your landscape, this one won’t disappoint!

The foliage ranges from medium to dark green. Juniper Torulosa is an evergreen tree, so you can enjoy its foliage all year long if you live in the ideal climate. It’s a great choice for bare spots in your landscape that need some color in winter or in areas that need shade year-round.

Because of its artsy twisting habit, the tree makes a great focal point in the landscape, and you can trim it as a topiary if you’d like. It also works well as an accent plant or as a privacy hedge or windbreak when planted near other Junipers.

How to Care for Juniper Torulosa

This Juniper grows best in hardiness zones 5-9 and will stay evergreen in these zones. It’s drought-tolerant, enjoys the sun, and is easy to care for.

Juniper Torulosa needs full sun, which is at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. Mature trees shouldn’t have any problems finding the sun, so it’s the young saplings you need to be careful about.

Young and newly transplanted Junipers will need moist soil until they get established, so you’ll need to water about once a week and maybe more often in the summer. Once the tree is established, it will be drought-tolerant, and you won’t have to water as often.

If you live in a climate with extreme heat and little rain in the summer, you’ll need to water this plant more often. It does need full sun, but the lack of rain will require supplemental water.

Juniper Tolurosa is easy to care for because it’s tolerant of poor soils, and you don’t have to use a particular type of soil. You likely won’t need to fertilize it because it’s not a heavy feeder.

Be sure the soil is well-draining because Junipers don’t like to sit in puddles of water, even in extreme heat. Allow excess water to flow away from the tree so the roots won’t be waterlogged.

Torulosa Juniper Height

Juniper chinensis Torulosa grows up to 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide. It will certainly take up space in your yard if you let it. It grows quickly and has a spreading growth habit, but you can trim it as needed to keep its growth narrow and in check.

Torulosa Juniper Pruning Requirements

Juniper Tolurosa doesn’t require pruning, so you only need to do it as needed. You can remove unwanted branches or trim the entire tree to give it a defined shape. The best time to prune is early spring before new growth begins. Pruning should help the tree grow bushier and fuller.
