Description:

A most beautiful groundcover juniper, featuring bright yellow new growth over bluish-green fine-textured foliage; compact spreading and sprawling, with arching branch tips, superb for massing or as a color accent groundcover

Ornamental Features

Holger Juniper has attractive blue foliage which emerges yellow in spring. The scale-like leaves are highly ornamental and remain blue throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Holger Juniper is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Holger Juniper is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use
  • Groundcover

Planting & Growing

Holger Juniper will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 8 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for xeriscaping or the moisture-conserving landscape. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
