Pruning is not typically required as a matter of course; prune to shape or to control spread as needed.
Tortuga™ juniper is a super-tough selection of our native Juniperus communis that naturally grows as a neat, low mound of fluffy, jade green foliage. The perfect plant for even the most difficult locations, such as underneath a silver maple. It is tolerant of deer, drought, dry soil, air pollution, poor fertility, mountain goats, polar vortexes, black walnut toxicity, sand, rocks, ground hogs, limestone, and road salt; perhaps more.
