If you are looking for a spreading Juniper, but one that is a little less aggressive than some of the other groundcover types, Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper is your plant. It still covers ground and tolerates sun and poor dry soils as well as any of the others, but it will spread only about 2/3 as much as other groundcover Junipers. It will bring a distinguished, more formal look to the garden with distinct, light to medium green prickly foliage arranged on trailing branches that arch to form a low mound at the plant's center, then stiffly cruise along the soil line through the garden. Plant it in groups or use it singly and enjoy its formal difference!
