What is Moonglow Juniper

The Moonglow Juniper is as enchanting as its name. Its mesmerizing color, adaptability and hardiness – not to mention its upright growth – make it an incredibly versatile tree that will light up any space in your garden.

In fact, its dazzling blue, shiny foliage reflects the glow of moonlight in a silvery display. And the Moonglow is totally adaptable, with a dense growth habit and easily trained branches that make it an excellent protective barrier.

Even better? It doesn’t shed its needles or produce any litter at all, so deer stay away. Through every season, your Moonglow Juniper will look exactly the same: Gorgeous Rocky Mountain pyramidal shape, cool, silvery needles on dense upward-forming branches, and healthy growth.

For starters, our Moonglow Juniper will grow and thrive in nearly every soil type from coast to coast – especially since it’s cold hardy down to -30 and adaptable to acidic or alkaline soils. And with just a little attention to the health of the branches, your Moonglow will grow pest-free, disease-free and perfectly healthy and hydrated.

But the best part is our Moonglow’s strong beginning. Because we’ve planted and grown each tree, meticulously, you get a healthy, well-developed root system and sturdy branching. We’ve put in the extra work at our nursery, so you get a high-quality, successful tree that flourishes in your own landscape.

There’s nothing like the vivid color, no-hassle growth, and reliability of our Moonglow Junipers. Add some magic to your landscape with the Moonglow!

How to Grow and Care for Moonglow Juniper

Moonglow Juniper (Juniperus scopulorum ‘Moonglow’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 3-8 outdoors

Planting

Plant your Moonglow Juniper in well-draining soil and full sun (about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily). Place in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. There’s no need to amend the soil, but do add a thick layer of mulch around the base of the tree for pest and weed prevention.

Watering

Make sure your Moonglow Juniper receives at least one watering each week during its first 2 years. Rain is usually enough to keep it hydrated, but you’ll need to water the establishing tree if you experience a period of drought. After it’s established, there’s no need to water your Juniper.

Pruning

Prune dead or diseased branches as needed. You can perform additional pruning for shape and size if desired. Keep an eye out for caterpillars and remove any branches that have been affected by them. Re-mulch with organic mulch every spring, and cover your tree during periods of heavy ice lasting more than 2 days.
