Purple Flat Top
The Juniper, Youngstown, Juniperus horizontalis 'Youngstown', is an evergreen and a flat top spreader with bright silvery gray foliage that turns purple in winter.
It makes a nice choice to use for a spreading groundcover since it is a very low growing juniper, rarely getting more than 12 inches from the ground.
Its prostrate growth habit, with tightly knit branches, creates a full centered look. It works well in rock gardens as a groundcover. For best results, plant in full sun to part shade and in well-drained soil.
Youngstown is ideal for rock gardens or arranged around larger rocks or boulders. This plant can withstand thin soils and excessive heat and cold.
This deer resistant plant is excellent for erosion control on steep banks!
