The Blue Chip Juniper is the go-to plant when you want a low evergreen with bright foliage to cover the ground. Just a foot tall, but 5 feet across, ultimately growing to 10 feet wide, it makes a dense carpet. The lovely silver-blue needles take on a handsome purple tint in winter, and it looks great all year round. For covering the front of beds, softening the edges of paved areas, or cascading down slopes, this plant has no equal. Use it among boulders and in those difficult hot and dry places. Plant it on the levels of retaining walls, or beneath upright plants in boxes and planters. Grow it with other evergreens in rock gardens – wherever you grow it you will love it.

  • Vibrant silver-blue evergreen foliage
  • Naturally low-growing ground cover
  • Cold, drought and heat resistant
  • Grows well in dry, rocky soil
  • Always attractive and trouble-free

Full sun and hot, dry conditions are perfect for the Blue Chip Juniper. It is hardy even in zone 3, but tough and reliable in the hottest zones. Very drought resistant after the short period it needs to become established, it grows well even in rocky and sandy soil. It stays free of pests and diseases, and ignored by deer, this plant needs no trimming to remain low and dense, but young stems can be pruned to keep it more compact.
