Why plant Slender Visions Juniper Big?

Why put up a boring privacy fence when you can have a vibrant living wall that is so much prettier to look at? A part of our Tapestry collection, Slender Visions Juniper is a narrow-growing evergreen tree that can be planted single-file to make a handsome privacy screen. You’ll get bonus coverage with Slender Visions, too—in time, it will grow much higher than the standard 6-ft. fence. This choice selection is valued for its sparkling blue-green needles and its upswept branches, which accentuate its strongly vertical habit. Try it also as a specimen in a mixed border, where it will lend structure and continuity throughout the seasons.

Slender Visions Juniper is a selection of Juniper also known as the Eastern Red Cedar. Native from South Dakota to Florida, this species has long been a part of the American landscape. You may recognize the scent of its fragrant wood, which has been used to line closets, chests, and drawers. For 100 years, this was the tree used to make pencils until the supply of heartwood ran out, and a California tree called Incense Cedar was chosen to replace it. Slender Visions was discovered in Wisconsin and was originally named Trautman Juniper after Herbert Trautman, the nurseryman who found it.

How to use Slender Visions Juniper Big in the landscape?

Calling all birders! The abundant silvery blue Juniper berries of the Slender Visions Red Cedar Tree are a nutritious treat for dozens of species of native birds. The beautiful cedar waxwing in particular is a fan of the fruits, and it takes its name from this Cedar Tree. The evergreen boughs also provide a safe place for birds to seek shelter and to nest in.

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.

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.

How To Plant Slender Visions Juniper Big

The Slender Visions Juniper is easy to please, and even novice gardeners will have success with it. Once established in the landscape, this durable tree endures extremes of heat and cold and period of drought. It is suitable for soils that are rocky, clay-based (as long as they drain well), acid, or alkaline. Deer leave it alone, and air pollution doesn’t faze it. The only things it doesn’t care for are wet soil and shade. Slender Visions may serve as an alternate host to a disease called Cedar-Apple rust, a problem in Apple orchards among some varieties of Apples that aren’t resistant to it. The disease does little harm to the Cedar Tree and primarily only cosmetic damage to the Apple.

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!
