Blueberry Delight Juniper
A Delightful Juniper for Your Home
Blueberry Delight Juniper is an evergreen shrub with ornamental foliage and berries. Plant these decorative shrubs en masse on a slope or naturalized area. Blueberry Delight is a “delightful” way to fill in problem areas or other spots where you’d like some low-maintenance interest.
Your Blueberry Delight depicts a striking slash of silver on each green needle, giving it a blue/silver cast. While most evergreens are valued for their year-round, vibrant green, your Blueberry Delight delivers an exquisite advantage over other evergreens with its unique coloring.
Even in autumn, the foliage turns bronze, for even more ornamental interest in your yard. From spring until far into winter, powdery-blue cones that resemble small blueberries appear. Your birds will love the special treat, as well as the winter shelter your Juniper provides them and other wildlife.
Blueberry Delight Juniper will grow to 1-foot tall with a 5-foot spread. It’s a multi-stemmed shrub that tends to sprawl close to the ground. It has no significant pest or disease issues, and can easily be pruned to manage its shape.
It prefers full sun but is tolerant of a variety of soils and conditions, and will even thrive in urban environments. Wildlife love Blueberry Delight, but destructive animals are less of a concern and deer tend to pass it by. In optimal conditions, Blueberry Delight will live up to 30 years.
Just as the name implies, Blueberry Delight Juniper will be a ‘delightful’, silver/blue evergreen for your home with ‘blueberries’ to entice well into the winter months.
