Silvery Blue Wave Loves Salt

The Juniper Hughes is silver blue, low growing and wide spreading.  It’s a top notch evergreen, perfect as an accent or groundcover.

The color of the Juniper Hughes is stunning, the uses are endless and the benefits are abundant.

The Juniper Hughes has silvery-blue foliage most of the year, adding low lying light to your garden beds. In the fall and winter it will delight as it takes on a slight purple cast.

With a mature height of 15 inches and a spread of 6'-8', its graceful branches would be beautiful cascading over rocks or walls.

The Juniper Hughes would also be lovely as groundcover, foundation planting or as a border. Its ground hugging growth pattern is perfect for hard to plant slopes. Planted along retaining walls or curbs it adds year round coverage, texture and color.

Don’t let the Juniper Hughes size fool you though, it is one fierce shrub.

Adaptable to snow and frost as well as excessive heat, it thrives in rocky or sandy soil and is highly tolerant of urban pollution. Even the deer will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.

Plant the extremely adaptable and hardy Juniper Hughes and enjoy year round color in your landscape.
