Buy Juniperus communis 'Green Carpet' juniper 'Green Carpet': Forms a lush green carpet

  • Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Short, dense, plume-like branches of aromatic, steely-blue leaves and ovoid, dark blue cones. This creeping juniper is an excellent ground cover plant for a well-drained shrub or mixed border. Perfect for softening the edges of paths and driveways, the handsome, steely-blue foliage takes on purple tints in winter.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant (avoiding the immediate crown) in late winter. Pruning is not usually necessary, however any shoots that ruin the symmetry of the plant can be removed in autumn.

I suspect, long after I have passed away, these low, slow growing plants will make an impressive contribution. Planted in 2017 they are intended to provide ground cover in a dampish, partially shaded area of my garden. In the meantime they seem to be happy enough.
