Aptly named Blue Rug, Juniperus horizontalis ‘Wiltonii’ is a low-growing, prostrate shrub whose dense, foliage weaves together to form a thick, bluegreen carpet. Its spreading, trailing habit and adaptability in a variety of conditions—including dry, rocky, and sandy soils—make the Blue Rug Juniper one of the most useful large-scale groundcovers. This tough female cultivar grows 6” high by 6-8’ wide and is cold hardy to below -30° F. Plant Blue Rug in full sun to part shade with good drainage and provide occasional water once established. Use Juniperus horizontalis ‘Wiltonii’ as a large-scale groundcover, on slopes, as erosion control, or trailing over garden walls.
