    Design IdeasThis ground-cover Juniper turns bronzy purple in winter for a welcome seasonal variation. Ideal for rock gardens or in planters with decorative boulders. Reliable plant for sites that suffer excessive heat or cold. Deer resistant. Excellent solution for rocky or gravelly ground. Use on slopes for surface erosion control or just as a low green carpet. Graceful when draped off retaining walls or along the hot, dry conditions along streets, driveways and sidewalks or paths.

    Care Information
    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a groundcover, space plants 5 ft. apart, (closer for faster coverage). Control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.
