Evergreen Question


I would like to plant something tall and fairly narrow on the corners of my house. I was thinking of a skyrocket juniper, but I didn't know if they would get too high. My eves hang over about 16" and I have around 10-12' to work with. Can I keep skyrocket's shorter or is their a dwarf version that would be as effective. I like the looks of the juniper but don't want to be cutting it down in a few years if it gets to high.

You should be fine, is the 10-12' the outer limit? Because that is about how far you want it from your house. They have the potential to get pretty tall, but not very broad.

Evergreen Question


I have about 5-10 feet out from my house. I would like something green to add some color in the winter, but I don't want something too big. Any evergreen ideas?
I already have a fairly large tree in the front of my house, so I don't want something too large.
