Go Back Juniper Blue Star Juniper (on a standard)

Juniperus squamata 'Blue Star'
Deer Resistant IconRock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Conifer Shrubs

Beautifully rich, blue foliage, compact size and dense growth. This plant is a slow grower, and at maturity it will only stand 3′ tall with a slightly wider spread. It prefers full sun but will also do well in partial sun, and will be happy in most any soil, acidic or alkaline, so long as it’s well-drained. Because it tends to stay small and densely foliated, it is grafted to standard stems to create a topiary-like ornamental plant.
