Description:

An exceptional introduction that exhibits the best silver-blue winter color of the groundcover junipers. Maintains a full, dense crown of finely textured foliage, creating a solid cover in a short time. Winter foliage becomes plum-purple in coldest climates. Easy and highly adaptable to heat, poor soils, and urban settings. Evergreen.

Design Ideas: Low blue spreading mounding junipers are the perfect choice for erosion control coverage on cut slopes and natural banks where run-off is a problem. This plant is perfect for nestling landscape boulders or softening the top edge of a masonry retaining wall. Makes an excellent winter structural plant for mixed borders that tend to look too barren in the colder months. Makes a useful problem solver in native and wild gardens when arranged in naturalistic compositions. As with most junipers it is welcome in Japanese gardens either natural or pruned into creative bonsai forms.

Easily grown in sandy soils on the dry side; adaptable to a wide range of well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Space 5 to 8 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.

History

The leaves of this juniper are toxic but used in certain home remedy ointments in the Old World. Foliage was repellent to lice and used in rural areas and later oils extracted from the plant were used in traditional insecticides.
