How far apart should junipers be planted?

How far apart should junipers be planted?

If you are referring to the junipers sold in 3-1/2 inch pots at goGardenNow.com, understand they can all grow 4' to 6' across. However, planting distance is as much an issue of coverage speed and budget as ultimate spread. The J. conferta 'Blue Pacific' and J. horizontalis 'Wiltonii' can be planted as much as 3' apart, but because of their age and size, you might prefer to plant them as close as 18" apart so you'll see faster coverage.

I recommend the J. procumbens 'Nana' be planted about 18" apart because it is slower growing. But if you have the time and patience, the variety can be planted farther apart.
