Special Attributes

‘Blue Pacific’ is an improvement over Shore Juniper with better blue foliage, lower growth habit, denser foliage along the branches and is known to hold up better during winter. Aromatic, blue-green needles (to 5/8” long) appear in groups of three along the trailing branches forming a dense, erosion controlling carpet wherever it grows. 

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 inches tall and spreading relatively quickly up to 12 feet wide, Blue Pacific Juniper is ideal for use in mass plantings for erosion control on sunny embankments, hillsides and slopes or as a border in landscape beds and islands. It also spills over walls and is a great choice to underplant small trees such as Japanese Maple and Crape Myrtle. Excellent Xeriscape plant (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing:  3-5 feet for mass plantings;  14 feet or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Blue Pacific Juniper is exceptionally easy to grow in most any average, well-drained soil and full sun to a little light shade. Plants are exceptionally drought tolerant when established. Constantly soggy or wet soil can cause root rot or other harmful plant diseases. Very low-maintenance, it requires no pruning.
