Design IdeasThis silver-gray Juniper is a rugged plant for screening, massive hedges and windbreaks. Also works well as a specimen in lawns or with other groundcovers. Use as a corner element or to increase contrast among other deeper green background plants. Good choice for narrow sideyards. Grow as a hedge row, a cluster in large-shrub landscapes or as a single specimen.
