This juniper hales from the windswept prairies of Alberta, Canada. This horizontal juniper only gets six inches tall with a spread of five feet making it ideal to drape over timbers and rock walls. The standout feature besides being extraordinarly rugged is the intense blue hue of its needles that really come into play in the winter garden. One could find many uses for such a carefree shrub! Tolerant of most soils so long as they drain well. Can be grown in clay so long as its kept on the dry side.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
