When it comes to a sound investment in your landscaping, the Blue Chip Juniper (Juniperus horizontalis 'Blue Chip') is a great choice. This attractive groundcover will remind you day after day what a great decision you made by choosing it.
Blue Chip Juniper creates a pop of blue that perfectly offsets your other landscaping plants. Not only is it the perfect shade of iridescent bluish-green for the majority of the year, but it also provides dense coverage and winter interest. This Juniper's steel-blue foliage tends to transform into violet tones in winter.
Blue Chip Juniper is also called "creeping Juniper" because it slowly spreads to completely fill in bare and unsightly spaces. Over time, it will grow to cover 10 lateral feet. And because it doesn't grow much taller than 10-inches, you don't have to worry about pruning or shaping it. Additionally, as an evergreen, you can count on it providing ground coverage all year round.
Birds love building their nest in Juniper, although the Blue Chip's low-growing nature may not make it a bird's first choice for a nesting location. The Blue Chip Juniper is also highly disease- and pest-resistant.
This Juniper isn't just attractive and providing beneficial housing for birds, it's also one of the easiest plants you can grow. Developed to survive in rocky, dry, and hilly terrain, the Blue Chip Juniper is a true champion. As its name implies, you can count on it to thrive in the hottest summers and the coldest winters. It's happy to grace your rock garden with its beauty or provide an embankment with stability. Many gardeners plant theirs above a retaining wall, where it can trail and spillover.
