Design Ideas Bright green Juniper like this are treasured in arid or very cold winter landscapes when emerald hues are so rare. Plant this creeping shrub as groundcover through weed-blocking fabric. Thrives in rocky ground, mountainous conditions and anywhere the soil is thin. Use on slopes for coverage or erosion control. Allow it to drape off retaining walls or cover unsightly transition zones at the edges of paving. Excellent deer resistance.
Foliage Color Green
Care Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a groundcover, space plants 5 ft. apart, (closer for faster coverage). Control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.
