Landscape Notes: 'Blue Rug' Juniper certainly lives up to its name, as it gives the appearence of carpet in the landscape. It is especially useful for erosion control on slopes, banks, and berms. Its popularity is enhanced by good year-round foliage and low maintenance qualities, once established. Rocks and boulders look nice in 'Blue Rug' Juniper plantings. 'Blue Rug' Juniper is one of the lowest growing of all the ground hugging juniper. It grows to only a few inches tall at most and creeps to about 4 to 6 feet in width over time. The trailing branches form a dense, dark blue-green mat that turns an attractive purplish-bronze during winter.

Exposure/Culture: Must have full sun. 'Blue Rug' Juniper is adaptable to a wide range of well-drained soil types. Requires little, if any, pruning.

Other Notes: 'Blue Rug' Juniper is commonly used for mass planting as a turf substitute, on slopes or embankments, in rock gardens and planter boxes, under or around tall shrubs or small trees, or cascading over a wall. It is perfectly suited for underplanting lace-leaf Japanese maples.
