How To Care

The blue star juniper tree is ideally planted in spring or fall, but in climates with mild summers or mild winters they can be planted at this time as well. These grafted topiary trees are cold hardy and can be planted in winter if the ground is digable.

Plant this juniper tree in full to part sun and in any soil that is well drained. Blue star junipers are very adaptable and can grow in just about any soil type. They do prefer neutral to acidic soil so adjust your soil accordingly. Add a 1 to 2 inch layer of pine bark mulch to keep the soil moist and protect the roots after planting.

Water your new topiary tree deeply a couple times per week for the first couple months while your tree is establishing its roots. After establishing, this dwarf tree only needs watered during periods of extreme drought. Fertilize when planting and in early spring yearly with a slow release fertilizer. Junipers tolerate drought, pollution, and salt, but do not like wet soil.

Blue star junipers are tough and hardy plants. They are deer, pest, and disease resistant. Mites and scale can sometimes be an issue for these evergreens. These insects can be treated with horticultural oil or the insecticide, Bonide, for more severe infestations. Avoid planting the blue star juniper tree on a wet site as this can promote fungal issues.

Once again very impressed with Planting Tree

We ordered two plants from Planting Tree in August and had a very good experience, so decided to give this very unique tree a try. Easy to order and a timely delivery. Most importantly it was well packed and the soil was still moist. We have had the tree for about two months now and it is doing well (planted in October). Apart from keeping it watered for the first few weeks, haven't really had to do any other maintenance and are seeing some very slight growth. We also get a lot of questions from neighbors about it!
