Design Ideas: Low rich green 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.

Adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Space 5 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.
