JUNIPER BLUE PACIFIC

Description

Blue Pacific Juniper’ is a trailing, lower growing cultivar of  Juniperus conferta that typically grows to at most 12” tall.  ‘Blue Pacific’ has better blue foliage color, better ground cover form and better resistance to winter injury. Junipers are a versatile, sprawling ground cover that tolerate hot, dry locations in full sun. Rock gardens. Foundations. Slopes. Mass plantings. Cascade over retaining walls. Particularly effective in sandy locations along coasts or dunes.

Junipers are generally susceptible to blights (dieback of stem tips), particularly in unusually rainy/wet springs. Phomopsis twig blight is of particular concern.  Root rot may occur, particularly in wet, poorly drained soils.  Watch for spider mites. Foliage on mature plants will sometimes die back in the center. Less susceptible to winter injury than the species.
