Rocky Mountain Juniper 'Wichita Blue' Characteristics
This decorative evergreen brings dimension, texture and striking year-round color to any landscape. Its needles are full enough to provide privacy in a living wall setting, but unlike many evergreens, this tree is small enough to avoid overpower a small yard.
Wichita Blue has blueish-grey needles that retain their color all year, providing fantastic winter interest. It is a hardy tree that is accustomed to rocky and well-drained soil.
Native to the Rocky Mountains, this small tree is perfect for hillsides and areas with little standing water.
Wichita Blue is deer-resistant and tolerant of drought, erosion, and city air pollutants. It is most vulnerable in saturated, poorly-drained soils. Root rot, fungi and some insects can pose a threat to their health, and they should be monitored for any emerging problems.
