1- How tall is a newly purchased skyrocket? Are there different sizes available?
2- What is the expected growth in height after initial planting? I will be using a series of plants as a screen and will have full sun (southern exposure), in southern California, very close to the coast in sandy-ish soil.

Skyrocket Juniper will grow 6-12" per year once the roots become established. They will grow in either full sun or part shade. They are normally available in one-, five- and seven-gallon containers and will range in size from 3-10 feet at the nursery.

Best wishes with your new plants!
