Why the Hetzi Upright Juniper?

Long recognized as a versatile problem solver, Hetzi Upright Juniper does it all. Whenever you need a columnar evergreen element in a sunny spot, it gets the job done. Employ a whole row of Hetzi Junipers to forge a sturdy windbreak, or plant a line of them to give you privacy while you enjoy your patio, pool, or outdoor entertaining space. A matched pair of trees makes a fine formal accent in a sunny foundation planting, and a single specimen creates structure in a mixed border all year long. Drought tolerant and easy to care for, too!

Frank Hetz was a house painter in Fairview, Pennsylvania around the turn of the century, working hard to support his young family. When the lead in the paint he used began to impact his health in 1909, however, he had to find a new line of work. Having had a farming background, he decided to grow and sell Christmas Trees. When his evergreens were ready to sell (shortly after World War I), he found that people wanted his trees not for cutting, but for planting in their landscapes. Hetz suddenly found himself in the nursery business—his company is still in operation today. He selected Hetzi Upright Juniper from a crop of seedlings he raised in the 1930s.

How to use in the landscape?

Hetzi Upright Juniper produces a crop of showy, silvery-blue Juniper berries in early fall, which backyard birds may occasionally snack on. Songbirds will also be attracted to the shelter of its dense branches, and may build their nests there.

How To Plant

Hetzi Upright Juniper is about as easygoing as they come. The only things it will not abide are shade and “wet feet,” so be sure to plant it where it will receive sun all day long and where the soil drains well and doesn’t remain soggy after a rain. It will need regular irrigation during the first couple of years of establishment, but should be able to survive on what falls from the sky after that. Fertilize with the Bower & Branch Elements™ Fertilizer to encourage a strong root system to form. Very little pruning will be needed, but if you want to take out a stray branch or shear your Hetzi Upright Juniper even tighter, these things can be accomplished at any time.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

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 year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Shear early each spring to control height and keep it full.

How Does Shipping Work?

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 XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

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 large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. 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!
