Juniperus sabina var. tamariscifolia
Pronunciation: ju-NIP-er-us sa-BI-na tam-ar-iss-sif-FOH-lee-a
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
