Keteleer Juniper is primarily valued in the landscape for its distinctively pyramidal habit of growth. It has emerald green evergreen foliage which emerges grayish green in spring. The scale-like sprays of foliage remain emerald green throughout the winter. It produces powder blue berries from late spring to late winter.
Keteleer Juniper is an evergreen tree with a strong central leader and a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.
Keteleer Juniper will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 15 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more.
This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
