Juniper - Calgary Carpet
This Juniper Has Soft Foliage
Juniper - Calgary Carpet, Juniperus sabina 'Monna', is a great plant to use when you need a lower growing evergreen, but don't like the "prickers" that one tends to associate with Junipers.
Bright green in color and soft textured, the foliage of the Calgary Carpet has a scale-like appearance and is soft to the touch. The layered branching habit of this plant gives the subtle appearance of soft undulations in the ground beneath it.
Calgary Carpet would serve nicely in a small Zen garden, with it's ability to suggest a forest of undulating green.
This juniper does well in dry soils that are well drained, and needs to have partial to full sun exposure.
It's mature height rarely exceeds 9" but can spread to 6' wide or more.
