Juniperus scopulorum Blue Arrow
Rocky Mountain Juniper
Common Name: Rocky Mountain JuniperLatin Name: Juniperus scopulorum 'Blue Arrow'Soil: Moist but well-drained (will tolerate most soil types)Position: Full sun or partial shadeHardiness: Fully hardyHeight in 10 years: 1.5-2mSpecial features: Narrow columnar habit, grey green foliage. (Evergreen)Juniperus scopulorum 'Blue Arrow' makes an attractive, slow-growing and very narrow column of blue-green foliage that can achieve a height of 4m yet just 50cm across. Best planted it in a sheltered, shady site to encourage its leanness. The needles are pressed close against the branches, giving vertically held, whippy looking sprays that, on close inspection, can appear rather coarse looking. It is the narrowest, most 'pencil like' of all columnar conifers, making it very useful for landscape people. These look attractive planted in rows or either side of a doorway.
Picea pungens Iseli Fastigiate
Colorado Spruce Iseli Fastigiate
Common Name: Colorado Spruce Iseli FastigiateLatin Name: Picea Pungens 'Iseli Fastigiate'Soil: Prefers rich moist soil. Acid or neutral.Position: Full sun. Flowering period/colour: Non-floweringHardiness: Fully hardy (to below -20°C). Height and spread in 10-20 years: 5m-10m/0.7mSpecial features: Handsome oval spruce. Blue needles maturing to darker blue-green. Rounded, upright blue spruce with branches that grow vertically upward, rather than horizontally outward as in so many other varieties. The whole tree is shaped like a vertically elongated oval, which gives a pleasingly comfortable outline in a border. Young needles are more silver than the greener mature needles so that there is a pattern of developing colour all over the tree. The colour change is very uniform, and again gives a pleasing aspect to the tree when viewed in the distance. This is a mid-sized to tall conifer which will provide a fine backdrop to a border, or take its place as a specimen tree in a larger landscape.
