Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow Topiary or Moonglow Juniper Topiary Bonsai
Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow features a really vivid, showy intense blue coloured foliage that is eye-catching in any garden. The brilliant foliage hue continues all year round which makes it in itself an exceptional statement plant. However, the really standout feature of these unusual small garden bonsai-style juniper trees is their shape. They have been shaped as topiary cloud trees. While they are not actually bonsai trees, they are what we refer to as “garden bonsai” style trees that are about 1.5 metres tall excluding the pot. Slowly over time, these Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow topiary trees have been pruned and formed using the ancient Japanese art of Niwaki to resemble cloud trees or large bonsai trees.

It is surprisingly easy to maintain the shape of these slow growing Moonglow Juniper Topiary trees with an annual clip. To maintain the topiary shape, simply prune away new growth after it has flushed through in the summer with a normal pair of sharp garden shears. This Moonglow Juniper topiary plant is best trimmed in cloudy weather and it is a good idea to wet the foliage before trimming.
Very hardy, Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow grows well in any moderately fertile soil. It will thrive when planted in a rock garden setting. It can be planted directly in the ground or grown in a large container. This topiary version can be also kept in the pot for years and years should you wish, due to its slow growth habit. In terms of aspect, this Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow topiary tree grows best when placed in full sun but will tolerate partial or semi shade. During the first year of planting, the soil should be kept evenly moist but not overly damp for optimum growth, until the plant has established itself. Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow can withstand short periods of waterlogged roots and flooding. However, it prefers well-draining soil. Once the root system establishes itself, Moonglow Juniper is very drought tolerant. It is also resistant to browsing from deer, rabbits, and other woodland creatures.
This Garden Bonsai topiary is a style of topiary from China and Japan. It is very striking resembling as it does Japanese cloud trees. It is sure to add a touch of magic to any area of your garden. Dense, sculptural and very hardy, this Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow topiary tree will make an exceptional statement plant in your garden.
Juniperus Scopulorum Moonglow is also available in its natural conifer form.
