A useful ground covering conifer, Juniperus sabina 'Tamariscifolia' creates a blanket of overlapping subtley blueish-green evergreen foliage. The spreading, mat forming spiky foliage provides interest year-round. As Juniperus 'Tamariscifolia' ages, it will become more mound forming and gain a little height, growing to around 1.5 x 2.5 metres in 20 years.

This Juniper requires a position in sun or dappled shade in moist but well-drained soil. It can cope with acidic or alkaline soil, with exposure not posing a problem either for this ground covering conifer.

Planting Advice for Juniperus sabina Tamariscifolia Conifers

Our pot grown Tamarisk-leaved Savin trees can be planted at any time of the year. Firstly, remove weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole, then dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise sprinkling root grow in the hole.

Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. If your soil is poor, mix 50% of the original soil with 50% high quality compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems.

Aftercare Advice for Juniperus sabina Tamariscifolia Conifers

If you’re planting Juniper trees in spring, summer or dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. Keep an eye on young trees and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this.

Pruning Advice for Juniperus sabina Tamariscifolia Conifers

Ornamental Junipers do not require a lot of pruning. Simply remove any dead, diseased or awkwardly placed branches from your Tamarisk-leaved Savin as and when you see them.

The product table at the bottom of the page gives the forms and sizes available for this variety. Please note, photos are a guideline as all plants are unique. Below are definitions of terms:

Supplied Size: Height measured from the top of the pot.

Single Stem / Pruned and shaped: Classic shaped tree with a single stem that has had pruning to help create a beautiful, natural shape.

Top grafted: A height noted next to this form refers to the length of clear stem, which will not grow taller. Only the head of branches will develop. Top grafted trees do not require complicated pruning and are ideal for small spaces.

Multi Stem: A multi stem tree is has two or more stems arising from or near ground level, growing from one root system. Take care to buy a true multi-stem like all ours and not those that are 3 saplings in a pot to cheaply imitate them.

Feathered: A feathered tree has branches from the bottom of the trunk all the way up. These branches can be removed if a clear stem is required.

Bush: A plant with many stems low down, rather than one clear stem.

Climber: A plant that is a natural climber and will be delivered usually running up a bamboo cane, ready to position in the garden.

Standard Tree: A more mature tree with an upright clear stem of approximately 1.8m-2.0m (measured from the soil to the lowest branches of the crown). Standards are available in different forms relating to their girth size (circumference of the stem measured 1m above soil level), not height:

Standard  either 6-10cm or 8-10cm girth, approximately 2.5-3.0m in height
Premium Standard  10-12cm girth, approximately 3.0-3.5m in height
Heavy Standard  12-14cm girth, approximately 3.5-4.5m in height
Extra Heavy Standard 14-16cm girth approximately 4.0-6m in height
