Juniper shrubs are a low maintenance plant to grow. Junipers thrive in full sun and in well drained soils. They also prefer an acidic pH soils but will grow in soil pHs that are not acidic. Junipers are used for groundcovers and border plantings. They are especially helpful in preventing soil erosion, weed control, and planting on difficult to access parts of a landscape. Juniper shrubs are drought tolerant and perform quite well in rock gardens. Most varieties of juniper require very little pruning, if any. Be sure to leave enough room for the juniper plant to spread. Nature Hills offers several varieties of junipers and they are displayed below.
