Special Attributes

A true-blue gem in the landscape, 'Blue Star' Juniper is a low-growing coniferous evergreen shrub with intense blue, awl-shaped, soft but spruce-like foliage that is complimentary to most any other type of plant growing nearby. It has a mounded hemispherical habit and typically grows to only 1 foot tall after 5 years, but eventually matures over time to an average of 2 feet high and 3 to 4 feet wide. Sometimes commonly called singleseed juniper because each bluish, berry-like, female cone contains but a single seed. This cultivar is a sport of Juniperus squamata 'Meyeri.'




Landscape & Garden Uses

Its low and mounding form to 2 feet tall a 3 to 4 feet wide make the Blue Star Juniper ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or in mass plantings in home foundation plantings, landscape borders and for erosion control on slopes, embankments and hillsides. Also excellent as an underplanting for small trees such as Japanese maples, crape myrtles, palms etc. A fine addition to conifer gardens, blue theme gardens, Asian gardens, rock gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing:  2.5 to 3 feet apart for mass planting or solid borders;  5 feet or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Blue Star Juniper is exceptionally easy to grow in most any average, well-drained soil and full sun, however will tolerate some 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.
