The Sea Green Juniper is the Only Evergreen You’ll Ever Need
Sea Green Juniper shrub is a stunning perennial that will surely draw attention to itself. The branches arch outward from the middle creating an elegant fountain-like appearance that will steal the show in your landscape.
It’s the perfect choice if you need a focal plant in your landscape, or you can plant several of them together to create a low hedge. They also work well as foundation plantings around houses since they spread out and grow tall enough to cover foundations.
This Chinese Juniper 'Sea Green' shrub doesn’t develop flowers or fruits, but its foliage is evergreen, so you can enjoy its deep green leaves all year long. You’ll rarely need to prune it, making it a low-effort choice that will make landscaping a breeze.
Sea Green Juniper Care
Sea Green Juniper can grow in most parts of the US. It thrives in hardiness zones 4-9. If the plant isn’t exposed to consistently extreme low or high temperatures, it should be able to thrive where you live.
Sea Green Juniper requires full sun, which is a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight. If the plant doesn’t get enough sun, its branches will start to look thin and leggy and won’t have the full appearance of thick foliage.
It can tolerate some afternoon shade in hot climates but will require full sun to look its best.
Junipers are drought tolerant once they’re established. Make sure newly transplanted junipers have consistently moist soil until they’re established. If you live in an area that receives consistent rainfall, you may not need to water established plants since their drought tolerance can hold them over until the next rain. If you live in a hot and dry climate, you’ll need to water it more often.
The number one reason most people lose their junipers is because of too much water, so be careful not to overdo it! Junipers can’t tolerate soggy soil. Avoid watering in rainy seasons and wait until the top inch or two of soil is dry before you water it if you’re prone to overwatering plants.
Junipers aren’t picky about their soil which is one of the reasons why they can grow well in so many areas. They can tolerate both light and heavy soils and need very little fertilizer.
Since they can’t tolerate being overwatered, it’s essential that you know what kind of soil you have so you can know how to water it. Sandy or gravelly soil dries out faster while heavy soils like clay retain water.
Sea Green Juniper Size
The plant can reach a height of 6 feet and a width of 8 feet. This plant is for you if you need to cover a large area! The branches arch out from the middle, so the plant will get tall and broad simultaneously, so this is something to consider as you plan out your landscape.
Sea Green Juniper Pruning Requirements
Pruning is only necessary if you want your juniper to maintain a specific height or width. You can also remove diseased branches to prevent the disease from spreading. When you prune juniper, you can cut the branches at any point or remove them at the base of the plant.
