    Design IdeasThis blue-tinted Juniper spreads but is not ground hugging. Instead, it makes graceful wide mounds that are particularly lovely as individual specimens in fields of gravel or bark. A good choice for warm-winter regions, where it fits nicely into settings that are both tropical and Asian in appearance. Adds accent to a mass of flatter Juniper used for erosion control on banks and slopes. Particularly lovely in raised or seatwall planters.
