Design IdeasPerhaps the most popular of the landscaping Junipers because of its tiered, slightly arching limbs. Highly valued for its blue-tinted foliage, which adds much-needed variety to background greenery. Plant in a row to help silence busy streets, parking lots and school yards. Arrange to interrupt long fence lines or as a dramatic low-maintenance foundation against stucco walls. As good in hot and dry Western gardens as it is in the frigid north.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
