More about the Silver Mist Juniper...
Silver Mist Juniper is known for its outstanding silvery-grey foliage color and ground hugging growth habit. The spruce-like grey foliage adds a unique texture and contrasts nicely with many other plants in the landscape; particularly those with dark green purple, red, burgundy or golden foliage.
Plant the Silver Mist Juniper in locations that provide well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Tolerates more shade than other junipers. It is an exceptionally low maintenance plant that is very drought tolerant when established.
Silver Mist Juniper is useful planted in mass as a groundcover on slopes and embankments or as a border in landscape beds and foundation plantings. It is also useful in both the landscape and in containers to cascade over walls.

I was somewhat hesitant to buy evergreens online. There is another vendor called Direct Gardening that has horrible reviews. I initially confused GardenerDirect.com with that vendor. In any event, my plant material arrived promptly and was in perfect condition. Well packaged and kept damp during transit. I planted them right away- they look very healthy. This was a varietal that I just couldnt get locally. I will definitely buy from GardenerDirect.com again- many thanks Spencer!
