Junipers are some of the most drought and poor soil tolerant plants used in gardens. They have been used so much in the 1950’s and 1960’s that they have become a cliche and are seldom used any more. Junipers are so carefree that I have started to use them at Dawn Gardens. Here are four of the best:

Shore Juniper (Juniperus conferta ‘Blue Pacific’)

Gold Strike Juniper (Juniperus chinensis ‘Gold Strike’)

Juniperus procumbens ‘Nana’

Juniperus horizontalis ‘Wiltonii’

This is the lowest growing Juniper – about 6″ tall
