Column Juniper 'Hetzi'
A very large, upright juniper cultivar with a very rigid, prickly feel to it. The foliage is a nice green color - more green with a hint of gray to it in the winter. Commonly used as a privacy screen or windbreak. Heavy fruit/one/berry producer, and has very aromatic foliage when rubbed or crushed. Enjoys full to part sun, and withstands a variety of harsh conditions. Good growth rate. Very hardy variety!
Makes an excellent screen / border planting. Good numbers of bluish-purple berries in winter provide seasonal interest, and are a good contrast against the deep gray/green foliage. Performs exceptionally well in the high heat & humidity of the southeast.
