Your climate might be too cold for this plant:

Description A densely branched, low-growing conifer that gracefully spreads to form mounds of soft, scale-like, rich green foliage. An excellent conifer for use as a large scale groundcover, on banks and slopes, or as a rock garden accent. Evergreen.
Light Full sun
Watering Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.
Blooms Conifer; prized for foliage.
Mature Size Moderate growing; reaches 18 to 30 in. tall, spreading 10 to 15 ft. wide.
Deciduous/Evergreen Evergreen
Special Features Easy Care, Waterwise
Growth Rate Moderate
Growth Habit Spreading
Landscape Use Border, Ground Cover
Design Ideas This 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. A good choice for warm-winter regions, where it fits nicely into settings that are both tropical and Asian in appearance. Adds accent to a mass of flatter Juniper used for erosion control on banks and slopes. Particularly lovely in raised or seatwall planters.
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Clematis (Clematis); Rose (Rosa); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Catmint (Nepeta); Barberry (Berberis); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus)
Care Adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Space 10 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.
