Selecting a shrub - Knowledgebase Question

Hinsdale, Ne

I need to replace 3 Junipers in an area with poor soil but good drainage that gets filtered morning sun. The ones we have have yellowish needles and I prefer all green, We will need to keep them pruned and want some height, not ground cover. Can you suggest a variety?

You didn't say how much height.... The following junipers will grow from 2-4' tall: Mint Julep Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinesis "Mint Julep"), Sea Green Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinesis "Sea Green"), Blue Star Singleseed juniper (Juniperus squameta "Blue Star"), and Saybrook Gold Chinese juniper (Juniperus squameta "Saybrook Gold"). Slightly larger junipers, (4' to 6') include: Hetz Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinesis "Hetzii Glauca") and Pfitzer Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinesis "Pfitzeriana"). Hope one of these suggestions is just right for your landscape.
