About Blue Rug Juniper

The Blue Rug Juniper is a hardy evergreen ground cover variety with a low trailing habit and short needle-like silvery-blue aromatic foliage. This Juniper is commonly used as foundation plantings, around trees and shrubs, embankment plantings, beds, rock gardens, or planted along and allowed to hang over retaining walls. With an intermediate growth rate a fully mature Blue Rug Juniper will remain less than 1 foot in height while spreading up to 8 feet wide which creates a dense mat.

Typically the Blue Rug Juniper has no issues with pests of diseases and are tolerant of air pollution and resistant to deer. This ground cover thrives when placed in 6 - 8 hours of direct sunlight daily in USDA zones 3a - 9b. Until the plant has matured its soil should remain evenly moist, but must remain well draining. Soggy soil can cause damage to the plant.

Pruning your Blue Rug Juniper

Caring for the Blue Rug Juniper is relatively easy and it is often regarded as being low maintenance. The Blue Rug Juniper does not require pruning unless its growth has become unruly or foliage is damaged or diseased. Light pruning can encourage growth and will provide your garden with dense, healthy dark green year round interest. If you choose to prune do so in the late winter or early spring removing any dead and/or damaged foliage.

Spacing Your Blue Rug Juniper

For a seamless planting, space your Blue Rug Juniper 3 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 6-7+ feet apart.

    Plants were in perfect shape and meticulously packaged. Everything was fine. Thank you.

    I did not receive the two I ordered. Instead I received two additional azalea plants. The one juniper I did receive was a nice plant. A mixup when the order was prepared for shipping I guess.
    All plants were received in good condition however.

    The plants arrived in excellent condition and had obviously been packaged carefully. Even in their small, newly-planted state, they add color and texture to ground that was bare and unattractive. I think I need a couple more!

    Was very pleased with the 7 blue rug junipers I ordered on Sept. 10,2020. They were well package and arrived in very good shape. They were larger size and shape then I expected. Planted them right away , now hope they will grow.
