The Q&A Archives: Spartan Spiral Juniper

Question: Where can I get a 6 ft. spiral Spartan Juniper? I had a pair but one died. I've been trying to find a replacement but no one in Arizona seems to have anything other than a 5 gal. These are in a very visible location in the front of my house which is why I am trying to get as close a match as possible. Can you help me track one down?

I did a search on your webpage and it brought up photos of several styles of Spartan Junipers. The one that is the closest match to the one I have is the photo in the lower left corner of the page. It has a more tightly wound spiral rather than the longer drawn out spiral.

I would appreciate your help in finding a replacement for me, whether that means coming directly from you or through a local nursery.

Thank you.

Answer: Monrovia is a wholesale grower, so sells only to nurseries, not to individual customers. The National Gardening Association answers gardening questions for Monrovia, but we do not have access to their retailer information in terms of who stocks what plants. You can go to Monrovia?s website and click on Buying Our Plants and then input your zipcode. It will provide you with a list of retailers in your area. You can ask one to special order for you. However, not all plants are available in all regions throughout the year. The largest size that Monrovia offers for this plant is a 15 gallon. Research shows that plants in smaller container sizes can catch up rather quickly to larger sizes because there is less transplant shock, so the 5 gallon is actually a viable option if you can't find a larger size. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, but good luck in your quest!
