Sargent’s Juniper is the most reliable ground-cover evergreen for difficult spots. Nowhere is too dry and barren for this plant to survive in, and it will cover up to 10 feet with an 18-inch carpet of blue-green needles. Older stems have rugged silver-gray bark, and this plant is perfect for slopes, terracing, rock gardens and anywhere you need a reliable year-round green carpet, even at the beach. It also makes a very easy bonsai tree – it’s a Japanese classic, or simply spilling out of planters containing larger trees.

  • The toughest evergreen for hot and dry spots
  • A sprawling carpet of blue-green needles
  • Reliable in dry and sandy soils
  • Resistant to salt spray
  • A classic choice for creating bonsai trees

Sargent’s Juniper thrives in hot and dry places, and tolerates both cold winters and hot summers. It grows in any well-drained soil, even gravels and sands, and even at the beach. Once established it is very drought resistant, and one of the top choices for difficult locations. It is untroubled by pests, diseases, deer or rabbits, and needs no particular attention to thrive.
