Juniperus virginiana 'Grey Owl'
'Grey Owl' juniper
Family: Cupressaceae

'Grey Owl' juniper is an elegant conifer through all the four seasons of the year. Tolerant of dry soil, it needs full sun to light shad for best form. Its wide spreading branches can grow to 6'-10' wide by up to 12' high in a fountain shape, but can be kept smaller by pruning. The silvery grey, scale-like foliage is soft to the touch. 'Grey Owl" makes a handsome foundation, or a border plant free of most pests. Commonly grown in the eastern United States. Hardy in zones 3-9. Grey Owl juniper can be found growing around the Umass Dartmouth sign at the entrance to campus along Old Westport Road.
