Aquavita™ Juniper (Juniperus virginiana) is used for its aqua blue foliage. When you need year-round interest in the garden, this tall and narrow shrub is just the one to plant. Because it stays narrow, Aquavita™ Juniper makes a great shrub to stick in that empty corner where nothing else fits. Even better, it is very low maintenance.

This juniper is grown for its evergreen foliage. It has berries that stay on the shrub in the fall and winter. Birds love the berries and need them for scarce winter food. This juniper is also deer resistant. After it is established, the shrub will tolerate hot, dry conditions. It can be used as a screen or hedge, edging plant, specimen plant, or a landscape feature. Aquavita™ Juniper is native to the Rocky Mountains from Alberta to Texas and in similar mountain ranges from British Columbia to Arizona.

Aquavita Juniper Care

Aquavita™ Juniper must be planted in well-drained soil or it will not do well. It will grow in poor soils and can survive hot, dry conditions, but must be watered regularly. Aquavita™ Juniper grows in full sun and is hardy in zones 4a-9b. It should be fertilized in the spring with a slow-release fertilizer for shrubs and trees.

Aquavita™ Juniper can be trimmed if necessary. Stick to the tips of branches. Don’t cut the thick branches, which take a long time to recover.

Aquavita Juniper Spacing

This shrub grows 10-15 feet tall but because of its compact growth habit only gets 3-4 wide. It only needs to be spaced 3-4 feet, so can be put at the back of the flower bed without taking up all the space.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
