Versatile Evergreen Groundcover
- Size: 3 Gallon
Arcadia Juniper is an evergreen groundcover with lovely, versatile foliage. Plant a few of these for an effective groundcover, as a foundation planting or as a background plant in your perennial bed. It would also be excellent for a topiary project.
Your Arcadia Juniper displays a rich, green, lacy-textured foliage. The dense nature of this evergreen presents a somewhat layered effect and semi-spreading growth habit.
Arcadia Juniper is a dwarf and will reach a height of 1.5 feet with a spread of 3-5 feet. It’s a hardy shrub with particular resistance to juniper blight, which is a problem with some other juniper varieties.
Arcadia prefers a well-drained and sunny location but is tolerant of unfavorable soil conditions. It has even been known to thrive in rocky soils, and is great for erosion control. Deer tend to leave it alone, so you won’t have to worry about protecting it from nibblers.
The Arcadia Juniper is a great choice for a hardy, evergreen groundcover with a lot of uses. Unlike the average evergreen groundcover, Arcadia has the added advantage of foliage that is particularly attractive to pruning or natural growth.
Whatever your needs or conditions, it’s likely that Arcadia Juniper will be able to provide you with an evergreen to please for years to come.
