Juniperus 'Grey Owl' is a medium-sized, slow-growing, dense, compact, vigorous, coniferous, evergreen shrub of irregular, wide-spreading, broadly conical habit, horizontal branching and peeling, reddish-brown bark. Its silvery, blue-green, scale-like foliage turns brown-green in winter. Male and female trees grow separately, and female ones produce round, purple-blue, berry-like cones, covered with white wax, attractive to birds. Juniperus 'Grey Owl' can grow in wide range of soils and growing conditions, even swampy and rocky, but thrives in average, moist, well-drained soils, in sunny areas. It appreciates some shelter from the afternoon sun in warm climates. It is very resilient, tolerant of drought, heat, and cold. Low maintenance plant. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Juniperus 'Grey Owl' is a great-looking, slow-growing and long-lived conifer, perfect for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Great as a specimen plant, ground cover, or shrub border. Ideal for low hedges and screens. Wonderful when planted in masses.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
