JUNIPERUS chinensis 'Spartan'
Chinese Juniper, Spartan Juniper
Chinese juniper is a variable evergreen tree or shrub native to China and Japan. Its cultivar 'Spartan' is a tall, densely branched, fast growing, columnar shrub or small tree with rich dark green scale-like foliage. Small, blue, berry-like fruit appears in late summer on mature plants. The handsome foliage and upright habit make this a nice substitute for Italian cypress in cold zones. 'Spartan' prefers full sun and well-drained soil, and is widely used for screening, windbreaks, hedging, or as a specimen plant.
