The Spartan juniper reaches full maturity after 15 to 20 years of growth and features dense foliage in a deep green color. This plant can grow in slightly sandy soil conditions and requires minimal irrigation for optimal growth patterns. The Spartan juniper requires some sunlight to grow, but often reaches maturity sooner in locations with access to full sunlight.
