×

Synonym Names: Juniperus h. 'Blue Rug'

Family: Cupressaceae

Location:

This prostrate ground cover is valued for its silver, blue-green foliage which remains a constant blue color through winter. It is useful on slopes and when draped over walls. It quickly spreads 6'-8' wide, only reaching 6" tall. It prefers full sun and is cold tolerant. This conifer is great for erosion control and looks great in rock gardens. It needs occasional watering once it's established.  Information by: Jerry Sortomme Editor
