Love this juniper, mostly because it has survived. In south central Montana we have cold Winters and very hot, burning Summers This is the only juniper that has been able to survive. I tried the Tortuga version, bought three based on the description, they all died. Only the Montana Moss has survived.
Montana Moss® Juniperus chinensis
Irresistble texture and versatile color.
Montana Moss® juniper is a low-growing evergreen juniper that contributes appealing texture wherever it is planted. Soft-to-the-touch blue green foliage resembles moss or maybe even something from the under the sea. It makes an excellent edging or groundcover and pairs nicely with all colors of both buildings and plants. Deer resistant and sun loving!
