Juniperus horizontalis 'Wiltonii' Blue rug juniper
Blue rug juniper is a native North American conifer. It bears bright blue-green leave that retain their color through winter. Tolerant of hot, poor, dry soils, and full sun, this popular ground cover grows less than 10" high and can spread 10-20" horizontally. This plant should reach this growth at a fast pace. It resides in sea cliffs along gravely slopes, and swampy areas. Blue rug juniper can be grown to drop over walls as well as a ground cover. It also bears bluish colored berries much of the year. Hardy in zones 5-8. Drooping specimens occur in the Bus Stop Planter of the Centennial Garden.
