A dense mound of ground-hugging branches that radiate from the center. Bright green new growth turns a handsome blue-green as it matures. Winter color has a purple tinge. A wonderful evergreen for a group planting on a rocky slope, or trained into an upright staked specimen. Foliage and form is superb when left unpruned.

Easily grown in sandy soils on the dry side; adaptable to a wide range of well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune topiary forms regularly to maintain shape and size.

Design Ideas This is probably the best bonsai-style Juniper for Asian gardens or for small topiary. Super tight foliage and lovely blue-green tint makes a neat mound. Perfect with rocks and in rock gardens or around natural rocky water features. Because it is available in so many preshaped forms, you can choose one for a formal setting, another for true bonsai and a third for a courtyard specimen with multiple branches. Highly recommended for tiny city gardens; if there's room for only one Juniper, let it be this one.
