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.
