Juniperus communis ‘Greenmantle’ Juniper

Description: 'Greenmantle' is a creeping variety with moderate growth and light-dark green needles, growing up to 0.2 metres high and 2 metres wide. It creates green, dense carpets that build up on the ground, and when grown as a top worked form creates a graceful weeping shape. Juniperus are renowned for their use in Bonsai and they train extremely well as topiary.

Juniperus Growing Tips: Thrives particularly well on fresh to moist, well-drained soil in the sun to partial shade. It also proves to be extremely robust, frost-resistant, compatible with cuts and even hard-wearing.
