The Blue Star Juniper is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a more or less rounded form that has attractive blue foliage which emerges silvery blue in spring and remain blue throughout the winter but the flowers, fruit or bark neither add nor detract from the plant colour.

This Juniper is It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which should be used to full effect. It 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.

Blue Star Juniper will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 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.
