    Design IdeasThis ground-cover Juniper looks its best when winter cold turns all the foliage bronzy purple 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 in 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 near streets, driveways and sidewalks or paths.
