The Savin Juniper has emerald green foliage that reamins the same colour throughout the fall and winter. It produces blue berries from late spring right through to late winter. The rough gray bark is not particularly outstanding.
This Juniper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright vase-like spreading 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 usually looks its best without pruning, although it will tolerate pruning pruning in the early spring if the branches get too long
The Savin Juniper will grow up to 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 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 performs well in both full sun and full 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.
