'Gold Cone' Juniper
'Gold Cone' (Common juniper) is an upright, narrow, columnar, evergreen shrub forming a splendid exclamation point in the landscape. Emerging bright gold in spring, the foliage of tightly packed needles retains its warm color in summer and fall before changing to blue-green in winter. Slow growing, this upright juniper makes a wonderful specimen plant and is an excellent addition to the mixed border. Its pleasing and not-too-bright gold color lends itself to inspired plantings. Equally ideal for providing year-round structure in seasonal containers.
Grows up to 3-5 ft. tall and 1-2 ft. medium moisture, well-drained soils. Tolerates a wide range of soils including poor soils. Drought tolerant once established.
