Design Ideas: In very cold regions, this blue Juniper adapts well to snow and frost. Lovely when planted around boulders or in rock gardens, where its twisted branches can be trained to unique forms. A reliable plant for high desert with its rapidly fluctuating day and night temperatures. Thrives in rocky, thin mountain soils or the sandy gravel of inland deserts. Use on slopes for coverage or erosion control. Plant along retaining walls and curbs, where the creeping foliage will cover year-round. Good along the hot, glaring edges of paved streets and driveways.

Grows easily in average, well-drained soil, but adapts to a wide range of conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought in cooler regions. Space 5 ft. apart, as groundcover; control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.
