More about Burkii Juniper...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Burkii is a very handsome upright Juniper that has been around for quite a while, yet continues to be a popular choice for border plantings, privacy screens, and single specimen tree. It has a narrow to broadly pyramidal shape / growth habit, and very nice silvery blue foliage that is very aromatic when rubbed or crushed. During the winter months Burkii will have a slightly purplish cast to the foliage. Very hardy variety with a moderate to fast growth rate and needs no trimming or pruning to keep a nice shape as it grows. Definitely an upright juniper that is worthy of consideration.


Useful in landscape beds, islands and medians as screen, buffer, specimen, or in groups. Useful on the corners of tall homes or a building to frame the outside corners. 


Burkii Juniper is easy to grow in well-drained soils and full sun or light shade. It isn't fussy about soil type even growing in dense clay. No pruning is required unless you want to shear it for a more formal shape. Feed in spring with a well-balanced shrub and tree type fertilizer.
