Source for Juniperus virginiana 'Canaertii' liners

mrgpagFebruary 14, 2012

anyone know of a source that has small plants for lining out? We have a need for about 100-150. Going to try and root some but from what I've read it's very difficult at best.

Decker Nursery lists having 4300 available in 2.5 inch liner. The are located in OH so may be relatively close to you. I could not find any info about wholesale vs retail on their website


Here is a link that might be useful: Link to availability

Thanks again

What are your plans for 100-150 'Canaertii' junipers?

Random screen plantings and individual groupings of 3 or more?

I have 30 + years dealing with this cultivar.

There are some pitfalls that can't be avoided but for the most part they make a wonderful screen if planted correctly.

When I planted in 1981 one of the best screen makers out there. If to do over again today there are much better choices out there if screening is your objective.

Dave -
Cox Arboretum is part of the Five Rivers Meroparks(FRM) system here in the Dayton area and FRM management is on a big plant native kick. And we have a couple attractive large old Canaertii in our collection which our Horticulturist wants to promote since it's a cultivar of our native J. virginiana - which do very well here locally. We do have some screening in mind for some of the plants and others may be given away to Members to promote the native plant theme - personally I wouldn't take one as I have no need for it on my property.
So if you have any comments to share, I'll pass them on to the powers-to-be for their consideration.

My only concern is long term survival. They can live a long time if cared for and grown in a way to ensure survival.

If planted as specimen plants they are very likely to fall victim to ice and heavy wet snow loads. Planted as a grouping, 3 or more, or for that matter in a staggered screen they tend to protect each other from limb breakage as they droop and lean against each other.

If the powers to be proceed with this venture make sure all are groomed into single leader plants to ensure survival from the elements. If left to free range most will be multi-leader specimens and we all know the problems associated with that.
