Aquavita™ Juniperus virginiana
Unforgettable, almost unreal color!
This aqua-blue pyramidal juniper caught our attention for its color and kept us hooked with its elegant narrow habit. If you're familiar with 'Blue Arrow', Aquavita™ has a more natural-looking, filled in shape. Excellent deer resistance and low maintenance nature make it a perfect fit for any garden, as a specimen, screen, or hedge.
