Juniper chinensis Trautman

Chinese Juniper

Juniperus chinensis ‘Trautman’ is a hardy alternative to the temperate Italian Cypress. This narrow, coarse textured, bluish gray-green spire is incredibly useful in garden design. As a single specimen it will make a majestic statement as it towers above other garden plants while maintaining a small footprint. It will thrive in full sun and well-drained soil. It was selected by the late Herbert Trautman, a highly respected Wisconsin nurseryman. 

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Plant in full sun in moist well drained soil. It is tolerant of dryness once well established. No pruning is necessary to maintain its narrow vertical habit.
