Skyrocket JuniperJuniperus scopulorum 'Skyrocket'Sku #54001 ReviewPreviousNext12Stately, columnar form makes this likely the narrowest juniper available - so narrow and upright, in fact, it resembles a skyrocket! A durable and versatile evergreen with beautiful bluish green foliage, it works well grouped to form a colorful screen, or singly as a garden accent in a mixture of conifers. Requires very little care, once established.
