The Pancake Juniper is the flattest evergreen on the planet, growing just 3 inches tall, and yet spreading out to 3 or even 5 feet across. The sparkling silver-blue leaves are scale-like, clinging to the stems. In cold areas they may turn purple in the winter. Grow it on flat surfaces or on slopes, where it prevents soil erosion. Plant it to spill over walls, or among rocks and gravel to follow the contours of the ground. Use it to soften the edges of hard surfaces. It grows well at the beach too, and it’s very drought resistant.

  • The lowest spreading juniper in the world
  • Flat mat of silver-blue evergreen foliage
  • only 3 inches tall but several feet across
  • Turns purple in cold winters
  • Very resistant to drought, poor soil and salt-spray

Full sun is needed by the Pancake Juniper, to keep its foliage color and dense growth. Grow in any well-drained soil, including poor sandy soils, rocky ground, gravels, and poor urban conditions. Avoid wet soil and shaded areas as that encourages diseases to develop. Generally free of all pests and diseases when in suitable soil, it isn’t normally eaten by deer. It is resistant to salt spray and doesn’t need any trimming or special care.
