Sea of Gold® Juniper Juniperus x pfitzeriana 'Monsan' #2 Spiral
Outstanding, lacy, golden yellow foliage on this compact evergreen makes a bold statement in the landscape. Superb color retention with a gold hue that deepens in winter better than other gold-tipped varieties. An excellent choice for mass plantings, along foundations, fence lines, driveways and island plantings.
Highly adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune topiary forms regularly to maintain shape and size.
