Blue Star Juniper
Juniperus squamata 'Blue Star'
|Description||Attractive sparkling blue foliage on dense, spreading branches. Creates a colorful contrast to purple and green foliage plants. Use in a rock garden or as a low border plant. Ideal for mass plantings in minimal-care landscapes. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Slowly reaches 2 to 3 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide.|
|Special Features||Dramatic Foliage Color, Easy Care, Waterwise, Benefits Birds|
|Landscape Use||Border, Poolside, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||This icy blue 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 or as a groundcover. A good choice for banks and rock gardens, where it grows gracefully around landscape boulders. Adds accent to a mass of flatter Juniper used for erosion control on banks and slopes. Particularly lovely in raised or seat-wall planters.|
|Companion Plants||Barberry (Berberis); Rose (Rosa); Catmint (Nepeta); Ninebark (Physocarpus); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus)|
|Care||Easy to grow in average soils; prefers well-drained, sandy soil; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer in spring. Rarely needs pruning except to shape as desired.|
|Lore||This species is also referred to as Singleseed Juniper due to the unique berry-like seed cones produced, each containing just one seed.|
