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.Good Vibrations® Gold Juniperus horizontalis 'Hegedus' USPP 22,743, Can 4,643
