Junipers and Arborvitaes are similar to each other and many times are confused with each other. They are evergreens, keeping their foliage all year, but usually change a little in color in winter. Flowering on these shrubs is non-existent at best. They may get small seed balls, but they just add a little bit of color to the shrub. We sell a few varieties of each. They are both very slow growers, so the ones we sell are smaller plants than what you will find available in the big box stores or garden centers. We do not sell the older, larger sizes because we have started ours in just the last couple of years.

At this time, the Junipers that we sell are considered groundcover varieties and small shrub sizes. We are in the process of growing others, but they are still too young and small in size for retail sales. They are available for wholesale. If interested, contact us about availability.

We have 3 varieties of Arborvitaes that we sell. They are all young and smaller in size. They are slow growers, but they will appreciate growing in the ground better than in a pot like we have them.

We also sell a couple varieties of False Cypress. They are similar to Junipers and Arborvitaes in appearance. They are both golden green in color.


Quantities on some of these Arborvitaes are very limited.
If you are looking for a particular variety,
ask us, because we may have it even if it is not in the sale.
