Plant Spotlight: Taylor Juniper / by Brooke

Have I mentioned lately how much I love junipers?  But really, they are the perfect shrub or tree for our climate.  They do well here and I love what they add to those dreary winter months.  It's nice to see some green, amid all the brown and more brown.  Ick.

But that's not the only reason.  I also love these particular junipers because they have a great shape, tall and columnar, which gives them a  naturally formal look without all the effort.  The Taylor Juniper, especially, keeps a nice dense shape and is great for a privacy screen or just a tall dramatic entrance.  So stately. Ha!

It's a nice complement to any yard and worth a spotlight.
