Why plant Slender Visions Juniper?

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 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.

How To Plant Slender Visions Juniper

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 Water

Once established, the Slender Visions Juniper is drought tolerant. However, when freshly planted, it will need consistant waterings. Water deeply and thoroughly to be sure the roots are receiving the water they need. Do so every three to four days for the first growing season.

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 To Prune

With the slow growth habit of the Slender Visions Juniper, pruning is not recommended. However, if you would like to shape it slightly, prune in early spring.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-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 you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees and shrubs, Size XL and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 3 weeks to be delivered.

Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations.

Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health.

Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order.

Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

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!
