Juniperus (Juniper)

Our Junipers are low-growing, trailing prostrate groundcovers. They are commonly used for mass plantings as a turf substitute, on banks, in rock gardens and planter boxes, around tall shrubs or trees or cascading over a wall. They are excellent for erosion control on light to moderate slopes and are particularly effective in sandy locations along coasts or dunes.

These junipers are tolerant of poor soil, even clay, as long as drainage is adequate (they prefers a dryish, sandy soil). They are rarely eaten by deer and are tolerant of salt. They do best in full sun. Said to be tolerant of growing growing near black walnut trees.

’Nana’ is often used for bonsai.
