Blue Forest Juniper

Out of stock
Blue Forest Juniper, Juniperus sabina 'Blue Forest', is a distinctive groundcover-type evergreen that has very attractive silvery-blue foliage. The upright growing branches present the "look" of a miniature "blue forest". Looks great when planted above a boulder retaining wall. This evergreen shrub has a wide-spreading habit with a somewhat vase shape that grows 4' to 6' tall with a greater spread. It has a medium texture and a slow growth rate. It prefers moist, well-drained soil, but very adaptable. Needs full sun, and once established, little maintenance is required. It is urban tolerant. Junipers are important evergreens for landscape use due to their tolerance of unfavorable soil conditions, their hardiness and great variation in size, habit, color and growth rate. Junipers are used as ground covers, in foundation plantings, or as hedges, screens or windbreaks. These plants may also be utilized for background plantings in shrub beds or flower gardens, as specimen plants, in rock gardens or for topiary or espalier purposes.
