    Features

    Unforgettable, almost unreal color! 

    This aqua-blue pyramidal juniper caught our attention for its color and kept us hooked with its elegant narrow habit. If you're familiar with 'Blue Arrow', Aquavita has a more natural-looking, filled in shape. Excellent deer resistance and low maintenance nature make it a perfect fit for any garden, as a specimen, screen, or hedge. 

    Top reasons to plant Aquavita juniper in your garden:

    - Stunning aqua blue colored foliage

    - Evergreen, ready for season-long interest

    - Handsome habit - tall, but still quite narrow

    Little pruning or maintenance is needed. Can be trimmed as desired - avoid cutting into thick, woody stems, as recovery from such cuts is slow.
