Juniperus chinensis 'Procumbens nana'
Dwarf Japanese garden juniper
Dwarf Japanese garden juniper is a fine evergreen ground cover that grows to about 8-12" high by 5' wide, and in a few years develops into a dense compact mat with branches overlapping each other. Blue green leaves may turn slightly purple in the winter. It grows best when soil is in full sun and is not particular about soil. This ground cover juniper is originally from southern Japan. Hardy in zones 5-9. Dwarf Japanese garden juniper can be found growing in the Alpine Rock Garden.
