Juniper, Blue Rug 1 Gallon
This intense silver-blue evergreen juniper is one of the finest trailing groundcover shrubs. Lovely when planted around boulders or in rock gardens, where its twisted branches can be trained to unique forms. A reliable plant for high desert with its rapidly fluctuating day and night temperatures. Thrives in rocky, thin mountain soils or the sandy gravel of inland deserts. Use on slopes for coverage or erosion control. Plant along retaining walls and curbs, where the creeping foliage will cover them year-round. Good along the hot, heat-reflective edges of streets and driveways. Blue Rug Juniper is deer resistant and low maintenance!
