Design Ideas This is probably the best bonsai-style Juniper for Asian gardens or for small topiary. Super tight foliage and lovely blue-green tint makes a neat mound. Perfect with rocks and in rock gardens or around natural rocky water features. Because it is available in so many preshaped forms, you can choose one for a formal setting, another for true bonsai and a third for a courtyard specimen with multiple branches. Highly recommended for tiny city gardens; if there's room for only one Juniper, let it be this one.
Foliage Color Blue-green
Companion Plants Rose (Rosa); Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina); Catmint (Nepeta); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Barberry (Berberis); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus)
CARE
Care Easily grown in sandy soils on the dry side; adaptable to a wide range of well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune topiary forms regularly to maintain shape and size.
