Details

Height: 4 feet

Spread: 6 feet

Sunlight:  full sun 

Hardiness Zone: 4a

Ornamental Features:

Sea Green Juniper has attractive bluish-green foliage. The scale-like leaves are ornamentally significant but remain bluish-green through the winter. The flowers are not ornamentally significant. It produces powder blue berries from late spring right through to late winter. The rough gray bark is not particularly outstanding.

Landscape Attributes:

Sea Green Juniper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a shapely form and gracefully arching branches. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Sea Green Juniper is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Groundcover
  • General Garden Use
  • Mass Planting

Plant Characteristics:

Sea Green Juniper will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
