Straight to the moon! When you first set eyes on these vertical conifers, with their upright, smooth branches tapering to a point, it is easy to imagine these trees are setting course for outer space. Juniperus virginiana ‘Skyrocket’ is a cultivar of Eastern Red Cedar, and grows 15-20’ tall by 2-3’ wide, and has a smooth, blue-silver appearance. Cold hardy to -30° F, the Skyrocket Juniper is a highly adaptable tree, able to thrive in a variety of light and soil conditions. In the fall, tiny blue berries develop and provide forage for songbirds. Use the versatile Juniperus virginiana ‘Skyrocket’ in narrow side yards, massed as a screen, or as columnar accents in formal, Mediterranean, Asian, and contemporary gardens.
