Blue Rug Juniper can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings, in foundation plantings, in containers or planters, as a border or edger, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, as a groundcover, for topiary, in landscape beds or islands, for erosion control or to accentuate entryways and also in rock or xeriscape gardens or theme gardens.

More about Blue Rug Juniper...

Blue Rug Juniper is one of the lowest growing of all the ground hugging juniper. It grows to only a few inches tall at most and creeps to about 4 to 6 feet in width over time. The trailing branches form a dense, dark blue-green mat that turns an attractive purplish-bronze during winter.

Blue Rug is commonly used for mass planting as a turf substitute, on slopes or embankments, in rock gardens and planter boxes, under or around tall shrubs or small trees, or cascading over a wall. It is perfectly suited for underplanting lace-leaf Japanese maples.
