Juniper is a very low-maintenance plant that is versatile and strikingly beautiful. The feathery foliage is a soft silvery green that will be on display all year long. While the plant does not get very tall, it does cover a large area as the branches creep out. On warm summer days, Grey Owl Juniper has a scent similar to Christmas trees for a pleasant and unexpected surprise. 

Juniper is fast-growing and versatile. Use Grey Owl Juniper as a low hedge or groundcover, plant it along foundations or embankments, around trees, in rock gardens. This plant is not just adaptable, but it is also resilient. Grey Owl Juniper is drought tolerant as well as insect, disease, and deer resistant. This plant grows as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 9.

Grey Owl Juniper Plant Care

Plant Grey Owl Juniper in full sun to part sun. Juniper needs 4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily to thrive. Water newly planted Juniper when the top several inches of the soil dry out, but this plant does not require much care once established. The plant may need a drink during an extended drought, but typically Juniper plants are very self-sufficient. Apply mulch around the plant to help retain moisture, especially when the plant is in an area with increased levels of sunlight.

Use well-draining soil to help shed water and prevent root rot. Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer each spring. Pruning is generally unnecessary, but remove damaged growth or shape the plant as needed.

Grey Owl Juniper Plant Spacing

Grey Owl Juniper will be 2 to 3 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide once mature. Space plants 3 feet apart to create a full and seamless mass planting, or space plants further apart to give the branches room to reach.

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.
