Juniperus horizontalis 'Blue Chip', a cultivar of Creeping Juniper, is a low-growing, mat-forming, prostrate, spreading evergreen shrub with long trailing branches, masses of short branchlets, and needle-like, silvery-green to steel-blue foliage, purplish-green in winter. 'Blue Chip' Creeping Juniper is a tough and resilient plant. It can grow in a wide range of soils, including poor, dry, and shallow rocky soils, but prefers average, sandy, medium moisture, and well-drained soils, in full sun. Once established, it can withstand drought. It is tolerant of urban pollution and coastal conditions. Adaptable to cold and frost. Doesn’t have any major insect or disease problems. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Juniperus horizontalis 'Blue Chip' Chip’ is a terrific groundcover, looking really nice when cascading over walls. It is great as a foundation plant, perfect on banks and slopes or along retaining walls for erosion control, and in rock and gravel gardens. Suitable for urban and coastal areas.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
