Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
JUNIPERUS chinensis 'Stricta'
Chinese Juniper, Stricta Chinese Juniper
Juniper ‘Stricta’ adds year-round color and valuable, vertical punch to gardens with its prickly, blue-green, needle-like leaves and narrow, densely columnar habit. It is derived from Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinensis), a highly variable species found throughout China and Japan, whose diversity of form has led to the creation of numerous cultivars of different shapes, sizes and color variations.
Junipers are easy, low-maintenance woody evergreens which prefer full sun and are not picky about soil fertility. Good drainage is essential, as they cannot tolerate saturated ground. 'Stricta' makes a terrific focal point for mixed plantings, and also performs well as a hedging plant.
