Male cones are large and brown, while female are blue, flashy, and berry-like. Juniperus x media 'Old Gold' is easily grown in a wide range of soils, except waterlogged, but prefers average, medium moisture, well-drained soils.

Adaptable to air pollution and urban conditions. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Juniper 'Old Gold' is one of the best golden evergreen spreaders, very decorative and adaptable.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
