How To Care

Be sure to choose the best location for your Blue Pacifica Juniper. As long as you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant your Juniper almost any time of the year.

Junipers thrive in full sun to part sun and adapt to any soil that is well drained. They do like a neutral to acidic soil so if you know you have an alkaline soil choose an acidic fertilizer (most fertilizers for evergreens are acidic). Junipers are great "street shrubs" as they tolerate pollution and salt well. After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist and protect the lower branches from fungal issues. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your Juniper deeply a couple times a week for the first month or two. After your plants are established, they only need watered during hot, dry spells. Junipers are drought tolerant after establishing and even more so after being in the ground about two years. Fertilize when planting and in early spring yearly with a slow release fertilizer. 

Junipers are extremely hardy and versatile. When properly cared for, they rarely have issues with pests and disease. Mites and scale are insects that can occasionally affect Junipers. These can be treated with horticultural oil. For severe infections the pesticide Bonide is recommended. Avoid saturated soils to prevent fungal issues in Junipers.

Landscape Ideas

The Blue Pacific Juniper will be a great addition to your landscape. Because of its ability to withstand salty conditions, it is great to use in gardens along the coast. Plant it in a perennial bed for long lasting year round color. Let it cascade down beautiful rock walls to contrast the texture of stone or rock. An added benefit of Junipers is their ability to control soil erosion. Let the Blue Pacific Juniper take over a steep hillside and put mowing maintenance to a halt. This low lying juniper is virtually maintenance free and will add a soft texture to your landscape.

The Blue Pacific is a low maintenance groundcover shrub. It prefers full sun to partial shade and can tolerate a variety of soil types. This plant does not require regular maintenance except for pruning when plants become mature. Prune out dead stems and thin out when it becomes clustered. This allows for air circulation and helps prevent plant diseases.

Beautiful plants, excellent root ball!

These bushes all came in beautiful shape; they got here quickly and with timely information. They all have good strong main stems and a lot of good growth as well as excellent root systems.

Awesome Healthy

I was truly surprised. I have never purchased such nice shrubs at a great price. The packaging was spot on, in tact and still neat and clean. I have already planted. No shock, looking good.
