The Q&A Archives: Juniper, Wichita Blue

Question: While the Juniper, Wichita Blue, likes full sun, what would be the result if it is planted in a shaded area that only gets dappled sun all day? Would it adapt?

Answer: In my experience, junipers including this one really prefer full sun all day long or for at least six hours including the hour of noon. In dappled light it might survive but it will grow very thin and scraggly looking. Most people are not satisfied with the way they look in shade.
