Juniperus squamata 'Holger' is a distinct cultivar of the flaky juniper, recognized for its ornamental appeal and adaptability. This evergreen conifer showcases a unique blend of blue-green and yellow foliage, presenting a striking visual contrast. Specifically, the new growth typically emerges in a bright, golden-yellow hue, gradually transitioning to a more muted blue-green as the needles mature.

This slow-growing juniper boasts a compact and spreading habit, making it a favorite for a range of garden applications. Given its low-profile growth, 'Holger' is an ideal candidate for rock gardens, ground covers, and even containers. The texture and color of its needles add year-round interest to the landscape.

Moreover, Juniperus squamata 'Holger' is celebrated for its resilience. It's notably drought-tolerant once established, allowing it to thrive in various conditions, especially in regions with water restrictions. This cultivar also requires minimal maintenance, further enhancing its appeal to gardeners of all experience levels.

Additionally, 'Holger' exhibits resistance to common pests and diseases that might afflict other garden plants, ensuring its place as a hardy and dependable garden specimen. Overall, its combination of visual charm and sturdiness makes it a coveted choice for diverse horticultural applications.

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).
