Prince of Wales Juniper
Juniperus horizontalis 'Prince of Wales'
|Description||A popular evergreen groundcover with low-growing, spreading blue-green foliage, prized for its beautiful bronze-plum winter color. The perfect fuss-free solution for rock gardens with poor soil, or for mass plantings to carpet banks and slopes.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 1 ft. tall, spreading to 10 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Ground Cover, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||This groundcover Juniper looks its best when winter cold turns all the foliage bronze-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.|
|Companion Plants||Barberry (Berberis); Rose (Rosa); Clematis (Clematis); Catmint (Nepeta); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus)|
|Care||Prefers sandy soils on the dry side, but highly adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply a slow release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
