Why the Blue Point Juniper?
Cool blue elegance. Blue Point Juniper is a sharp, stylish evergreen that lends a formal touch to the landscape. With upswept branches that come to a point, this classy conifer makes a strong vertical statement that draws the eye all year-round. Include a plant in your mixed borders as a focal point, or set a matching pair on either side of your gate or doorway to add instant curb appeal to your home. As a part of our Tapestry collection, Blue Point Juniper makes a fine addition to a mixed privacy screen, or you can choose to create a uniform hedge with a row of these sturdy sight-blockers.
Blue Point Juniper is a type of Chinese Juniper, a rugged evergreen conifer native to a vast region that includes China, Japan, Mongolia, and Korea. Chinese Juniper naturally assumes a wonderfully diverse array of forms, from low groundhuggers to towering trees, and in all shades of green, blue, and gold. Blue Point is a selection that has stood the test of time, having originated at an American nursery in the early 1970s. This durable blue Juniper serves as a good substitute for Colorado Blue Spruce when you want something that stays a bit smaller. It’s also adaptable to more regions of the country than Blue Spruce.
How to use in the landscape?
Our Blue Point Juniper naturally assumes an upright, formal shape, but you can give it an even crisper outline with pruning. This is easily accomplished with a quick, light shearing once a year. Start during the first or second season for best results—don’t delay.
Why Bower & Branch?
At Bower & Branch, it’s our job to know and grow trees… especially big trees.

We do the hard part. Our trees and plants are grown and cared for by only the best, local growers for years before they find their forever home in your landscape. Bower & Branch is known for having hard-to-find, substantial sizes and selection. The quality of our trees and plants are consistent in health and vigor—always ready for immediate impact in your garden and instant curb appeal. We never rush our trees to reach a ‘grade size.’ Our trees are grown for quality height, vigor, health and age.
We believe in empowering homeowners with the truth about strong, healthy and structurally sound plants that are grown to perform in the ground after they leave the nursery for home delivery, always fresh inventory from the grower.
How To Plant
Chinese Junipers are tough, adaptable plants, and the Blue Point Chinese Juniper is no exception. Its only non-negotiable demands are all-day sun and excellent drainage. It appreciates regular irrigation during establishment, but after a year or two it should be quite drought tolerant. This is a plant you can count on in challenging urban situations, as it copes well with pollution and poor, dry soil. It also finds a happy home in open, windy sites in the country. Pruning is optional, and pests and diseases are rarely a problem, making Blue Point Juniper a relatively low-maintenance option for your landscape.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How Does Shipping Work?
Size AA & AAA (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 5-7 business days.
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees, Size A and larger, will take approximately 14 – 28 days to be delivered.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on AA, A, B, C and larger scale. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
