Juniperus communis 'Point Saint George'

(dwarf juniper)

A striking selection from our northern coast of a species that is widespread across the Northern Hemisphere but rare on the coast of California. Sadly, the original population no longer exists due to seaside erosion. Forming dense mats of silver-green foliage under six inches tall, it slowly spreads to several feet wide. A perfect addition to the rock garden, preferring decent drainage and occasional water once established. Also works well as a container plant where the branches can cascade over the sides creating silvery waterfalls. Likes full sun to light shade. Deer resistant.
