Sunshine yellow all year long! Some things are worth the wait. Japanese False Cypress Lemon Thread is one of those things. This slow grower will only reach 3 to 5 feet tall in 20 years, but the impact it will make in your garden will be much bigger! Lemon Thread is an evergreen that keeps its soft-looking bushy needle-like foliage all year long. It’s not fair to call it an evergreen, though, as its color is truly a striking lemon-lime, emphasis on lemon.

Lemon Thread grows well in average, well-drained soil in all but the shadiest conditions. (For the best yellow color, though, plant it in full sun!) The soft texture is amazing.

Mini Juniper Thrives in Dry Soils The Mini Arcade Juniper, Juniperus sabina ‘Mini Arcade’, is a compact selection of ‘Arcadia’ with excellent, feathery foliage. ‘Mini Arcade’ is lower and more spreading than ‘Arcadia’. It displays a soft green color throughout the seasons and is tolerant of partial shade. ‘Mini Arcade’ is a moderate grower. It matures to 8-12 high with a spread of 3′-4′. The layered branching habit of this plant gives the subtle appearance of soft undulations in the ground beneath it. ‘Mini Arcade’ would serve nicely in a small Zen garden, with it’s ability to suggest a forest of undulating green. This juniper does well in dry soils that are well drained, and it needs to have partial to full sun exposure. * Layered Feathery Foliage* Grows 1′ by 4’* Full Sun and Drier Soil.
Thick, Silvery Blue Groundcover Some spots in your garden don’t need a tall, showy plant. They need something that is going to cover a wide area, really densely. The solution to that is the Juniper Blue Rug, ‘Juniperus horizontalis Wiltonii’. It is a ground cover that only grows 6” high but will spread 6 to 10 feet wide with ground hugging thick foliage. You won’t be surprised to learn that the Blue Rug got its name from its silver-blue color and low growing habit. You might be surprised to know, though, that it is the lowest growing juniper available and loves hot sun and dry, rocky soils. Its silver sea-green color makes it look like it needs to be pampered, but Blue Rug does just fine with your neglect once it is established. Use Blue Rug in your rock garden, cascading over your retaining wall or covering the feet of taller conifers. Put it in a planter and let it spill over the edges or let it spread around your patio pavers. A true evergreen, it keeps its needles and silvery color all year, which is a nice contrast to the deeper greens of other evergreens in the winter. This slow-growing groundcover doesn’t need pruning, unless it is getting out of bounds. Sometimes it will set dark berries in the fall, which the birds are more than happy to remove for you. The Blue Rug Juniper is a hard-working plant, thriving in tough places in your garden. Order a few from Nature Hills this year. They grow slowly, so the longer you wait, the longer until that bald spot in your garden is covered. * Silvery Blue Foliage* Creeping Growth to 8’* Full Sun* Lowest Growing Juniper .
