    If you're a "good vibes only" type of gardener, this is the evergreen for you!

    Good Vibrations® Gold juniper lights up the landscape with glowing gold foliage - and unlike other junipers, no prickly disposition. This one is soft to the touch! It's naturally low growing and spreading, making it a perfect durable, deer resistant, drought tolerant groundcover or edging plant. It loves sunny, dry spots, allowing you to transform those tricky areas into an oasis of color and beauty. This North American native is both supremely hardy and heat tolerant.

    Top reasons to grow Good Vibrations Gold juniper:

    - Colorful foliage is glowing gold during the growing season, appealing orange-purple in autumn.

    - Very resistant to drought and deer.

    - Thrives in both very hot and very cold areas.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Junipers are an excellent choice for year-round color in sunny, dry spots. Plant where they get at least six hours of bright sun each day for best results. Little to no pruning is needed; remove select branches to shape or manage growth if necessary. If you wish to fertilize, do so in early spring, once the ground has thawed, using a granular garden, rose, or tree fertilizer.
