Why would you want this shrub? Versitile ground cover

The Arcadia Juniper has medium green foliage. The scale-like leaves remain dark green throughout the winter. Although the flowers are not ornamentally significant they produce blue berries from late spring right through to late winter.

This Juniper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which should be used to full effect.This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.

The Arcadia Juniper will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 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 should only be grown in full sunlight. 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 a low-water garden or xeriscape application. 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.
