How to Grow

Taylor Juniper is about as easygoing as they come. It appreciates regular irrigation during establishment, but after a year or two, it should be quite drought tolerant. This is a plant you can count on in challenging urban situations, as it copes well with pollution and poor, dry soil. It also finds a happy home in open, windy sites in the country.
