Juniperus squamata (Blue Star Juniper)

Blue Star Juniper

A branch sport of 'Meyeri' found in about 1950. It is a slow growing low, rounded, squat plant. It grows about as high as wide. The young foliage is a rich blue. The rich foliage color is attractive.

Natural habitat is dry and windy with full sun exposure. It looks best in an open site with no shade during the day. This allows the foliage to dry quickly in the morning and helps prevent foliage disease from thinning the canopy. A well-drained soil is essential for good growth. Wet soil rots the roots and causes plant decline.
