Low-growing, Juniper Groundcover

Compact Andorra Juniper, Juniperus 'Andorra Compacta', is an evergreen Juniper often used as a groundcover. Use a few of these to blanket a barren slope, fill in around trees or place one as a low-growing accent in your perennial bed.

Your Compact Andorra Juniper is, just as the name implies, a “compact” version of the popular Andorra Juniper. It is a lovely, low-growing Juniper with a lot to offer. Its fine-textured, evergreen foliage has a delicate, blue-tinted green hue, lending a decorative touch to your landscape.

The foliage transitions throughout the seasons from the bright green of new spring growth to a deeper blue/green summer foliage, and a bronze tint for autumn. As autumn progresses, Addorra’s foliage takes on a slight purple hue that persists into the winter months.

Your Compact Andorra Juniper will grow 18 to 24-inches in height with a 5 foot spread. It has a low-growing, branching form with a spreading habit and is adaptive to a variety of conditions. Urban conditions don’t bother it, and even deer tend to pass it by.

It’s always easy to find a place for Compact Andorra Juniper. This compact, evergreen groundcover will not only fill in those annoying bare spots in your yard, but do so in a colorful and hardy manner. Andorra is even long-lived. Under optimal conditions you can expect to enjoy your Compact Andorra Juniper for up to 30 years…so it’s even a great gardening investment.

dense Review by The Eye
Compacta Andorra juniper grows thick enough to keep weeds from growing, very helpful on steep slopes like mine.
dense foliage Review by Joe T
My county agent recommended this plant for a steep embankment. I owe him a big thank you. It grew thick enough to keep the weeds down and it stopped the ugly erosion I used to have.
Nice in masses Review by world watcher
In South Central KY this is a dependable plant with excellent winter coloration. Bagworms the only problem, so install properly and watch during extremely dry summers for signs of an infestation. Better yet, provide some deep watering when drought becomes "apparent".
