    Description:

    A compact upright, pyramidal evergreen shrub with soft textured blue needle-like foliage all season long and showy blue berries, excellent for difficult landscape and garden situations, makes a great tall evergreen hedge in full sun

    Ornamental Features

    Medora Juniper has attractive powder blue foliage. The scale-like leaves are highly ornamental and remain powder blue throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Medora Juniper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a narrowly upright and columnar growth habit. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

    This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Medora Juniper is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Vertical Accent
    • Hedges/Screening
    • General Garden Use

    Planting & Growing

    Medora Juniper will grow to be about 10 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more.

    This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for xeriscaping or the moisture-conserving landscape. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selection of a native North American species.
