Design Ideas: Extreme tolerance of brutal cold and humidity makes this creeping Juniper a reliable plant for difficult sites. Because they are shrubs, you can plant them through weed-blocking fabric. Thrives in rocky soils and mountainous conditions, where the soil is thin. Use on slopes for coverage or erosion control, allow it to drape off retaining walls or cover unsightly transition zones at the edges of paving. Prostrate habit and slow growth also makes it a candidate for potted bonsai. Excellent deer resistance.

Highly adaptable and easy to grow in average well-drained soils, even poor, rocky soils. Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Control weeds until the plants have filled in. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Prune only as needed to maintain desired shape.

History

Juniper berries are the flavoring agent of gin. It's oil was once highly valued as a medicinal and used in many compounds. It was used to line pits where Native Americans stored food for winter because its oils prove a natural insect repellant.

I had to wait a few weeks before my Alpine Carpet Junipers were delivered, but the wait was well worth it because these plants are absolutely outstanding. Indeed, a superior product worth every penny.
