Answer: Juniperus scopulorum grows at the rate of 6-12 inches a year; I can not find information on the rate of growth for the variety 'Skyrocket'. Thuja occidentalis has a slow (as above) to medium rate of growth. The arborvitae (Thuja) can withstand light shading, while the juniper prefers full sun. Both will grow faster in full sun.
