Juniperus horizontalis 'Wiltonii'

Blue Rug Juniper

Blue Rug Juniper is a trailing, low growing, very prostrate, evergreen conifer.  Silver-blue foliage - ½" needle like leaves densely cover branches that spread 5'-6' wide.  Foliage takes on a purplish tinge in the Winter.  With a low, flat growing nature, Juniperus h. 'Blue Rug' makes a good groundcover for full sun slopes.  It needs well drained soil with average to medium moisture while getting established.  Drought tolerant once established.  Thrives in sandy soil and very tolerant of sea salt and wind.  Adjust to most any soil type as long as it has good drainage.  Birds are attracted to the bluish berry-like cone in the Fall.  Mature height 4"-6", spread 6'-8'
