The Green Mound Juniper is one of the very best ground-cover plants available. It is incredibly tough, growing in heat and cold, and tolerating drought and poor soil. It stays just a few inches tall, but it will in time cover an area up to 6 feet across. The tufted foliage is a beautiful soft blue-green to gray-green, blending perfectly into any garden. This plant is superb for preventing soil erosion and keeping weeds out, and it looks beautiful on slopes, banks, and cascading over walls. It softens the transition between beds and hard surfaces, and it needs no work to always look great. It can even be grown to cover the soil in large planters and spill out of them beautifully.

  • Dense mat of tight blue-green foliage
  • Stays neat and low without any trimming
  • Just one plant covers an area 6 feet across
  • Very tough, growing well in poor soil
  • Drought resistant and cold-hardy

Plant the Green Mound Juniper in full sun, in any well-drained soil. It will thrive even in poor, sandy and gravelly soils, and once established it is very drought tolerant. It grows well in urban conditions, and in dry, rocky places. Pests and diseases don’t bother it when being grown in well-drained soil, and deer and rabbits normally leave it alone. It needs no trimming, and it stays low and neat without any attention. This is definitely a low-maintenance plant that needs almost no care at all, once it is established.
