Juniper - Blue Star
Silver Sheen in the Yard
Blue Star Juniper, Juniperus squamata 'Blue Star', displays a rich steel-blue foliage color that is extremely attractive on this low growing mounded plant. The starry foliage creates an excellent addition to the foundation landscape planting.
Very adaptable and tolerates dry soils. Blue Star typically grows to only 1' tall after 5 years, but eventually matures over time to 2-3' high with a spread of 5'.
It features awl-shaped, silver blue foliage which is attractive year-round. It is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerant of a wide variety of soils and some drought, but intolerant of the hot and humid conditions of the deep South.
These Junipers are used as ground covers, in foundation plantings, or as hedges, screens or accent plants or may be utilized for background plantings in shrub beds or flower gardens, as specimen plants, in rock gardens or for topiary or espalier purposes.
