Guernsey Green Juniper, WINDWALKER® Series – Juniperus horizontalis ‘Guernsey Green’

May 18th, 2021

This ground-hugging evergreen with silver to black berries hales from the windy prairies of Eastern Wyoming, where this semi-desert variety is highly drought tolerant. Just as happy in the shade as it is in full sun, Guernsey Green joins but a handful of western native nursery plants that tolerate dry shade. Plant Guernsey Green as a living mulch around other xeric shrubs, perennials, and grasses. Enjoy it for its versatility, salt tolerance, and its lush evergreen beauty.
