The Welch Juniper is one of the best evergreens for hot, poor, dry soils in city conditions. Forming an upright conical shape, this dense shrub reaches 8 to 10 feet tall. The peeling reddish brown bark is furrowed into strips or squares. Blue-green foliage is aromatic if bruised and holds its color all winter. Produces blue berries.
Requires well-drained soils. Will not tolerate shade or waterlogged soil
This upright Juniper has a dense branching habit and needs little pruning to maintain its shape. It has silvery new growth that matures to a blue-green.
