Juniperus Blue Chip Juniper
Juniperus horizontalisLovely when planted around boulders or in rock gardens, where its twisted branches can be trained to unique forms.
A superior low evergreen shrub that displays beautiful silver-blue foliage on a widely spreading habit. The deer resistant foliage retains its rich color all year long. A durable, tough ground-cover for edging driveways. Plant on slopes or along retaining walls for erosion control.
Thrives in average, well-drained soil; avoid poorly drained, wet sites. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune young plants in late winter to promote dense new growth.
