The Buffalo Juniper stands out among junipers for its rich green coloring, that never burns; it soft, feathery foliage; and its resistance to both extreme cold and drought. It is outstanding as a low ground cover for slopes and banks, to cascade over walls, or to soften the edges of hard landscaping. It stays less than 12 inches tall, but it spread to 8 feet wide, covering lots of ground from a single plant. It soon forms a weed-resistant mat that needs no maintenance, and it looks great all year round, with no effort from you at all.

  • Wide spreading evergreen ground cover
  • One of the greenest and softest junipers
  • Exceptionally cold resistant for zone 3
  • Drought resistant too for low water usage
  • Thrives in shallow and rocky soils

The Buffalo Juniper should be planted in full sun, in any well-drained soil, including limestone, gravel, shallow soil and heavy clay. It is hardy even in zone 3, with no winter burning, and it is almost never bothered by pests or diseases. Deer and rabbits usually leave it alone, and it is resistant to salt spray too. For low-maintenance xeriscaping, this is the plant you need for all those exposed, dry areas.
