Full Sun, Partial Sun

The Dwarf Garden Juniper is one of the very best dwarf evergreens, with a unique form that is spreading but not sprawling, as the stems carry stiff branches that curl up at the tip. It has a unique profile and a gorgeous look, with spiky blue-green needles packed tightly along the stems. Foliage can turn purple in cold winters. Growing about a foot tall and spreading about 5 feet across, it can easily be trained into different forms, from miniature topiary to bonsai – it is a classic tree used in many ancient bonsai plants. Grow it in containers in courtyards, on slopes and among rocks, spilling over walls, and at the seashore.

  • Mounding and sprawling evergreen form
  • Spiky blue-green needles turn purple in winter
  • Unique form with wave-like descending branches
  • Tough and reliable even in difficult locations
  • Perfect ‘starter’ plant for creating bonsai trees

Full sun is best for the Dwarf Garden Juniper, but it can take a little shade for an hour or two each day. It grows best in well-drained soils, including poor, sandy, dry soils, rocky ground, and urban gardens. Avoid wet and rich soil, which can encourage diseases. Otherwise it is free of pests and diseases, and untroubled by deer. Don’t trim if growing naturally, but it does lend itself to trimming into topiary forms and ‘poodles’.
