Juniperus pfitzeriana 'Old Gold', commonly known as 'Old Gold' Juniper, is a popular ornamental evergreen shrub recognized for its striking golden-yellow foliage. This cultivar is a product of the species Juniperus pfitzeriana, which is often used in garden landscapes due to its aesthetic appeal and easy-care nature.

The 'Old Gold' Juniper displays a compact and spreading habit, typically reaching a height of 3 to 4 feet with a wider spread of up to 6 feet. What makes it particularly distinct is its foliage coloration. While the new growth emerges bright gold, older needles present a richer, deep golden hue. During colder winter months, this foliage often takes on a beautiful bronze tint, adding seasonal interest to gardens.

Its slow-growing nature, combined with its ability to tolerate a variety of soil conditions, makes it an ideal choice for a range of landscaping applications. Whether used as ground cover, border plantings, or focal points, this juniper brings color and texture to the garden throughout the year.

Moreover, Juniperus pfitzeriana 'Old Gold' is notably drought-tolerant once established, making it suitable for xeriscaping. It requires minimal maintenance and is generally resistant to common pests and diseases, including deer, thus further enhancing its appeal to gardeners and landscape designers alike.

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.
