    Description:

    An arching, sprawling evergreen shrub with very pointy needles streaked with interesting silvery blue lines and abundant showy powdery blue berries; extremely adaptable to poor soils and dry locations, very hardy

    Ornamental Features

    Blueberry Delight Juniper is primarily grown for its highly ornamental fruit. It features an abundance of magnificent blue berries from late spring to late winter. It has attractive powder blue foliage with silver stripes. The needles are highly ornamental and turn coppery-bronze in fall. The flowers are not ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Blueberry Delight Juniper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

    This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Blueberry Delight Juniper is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Mass Planting
    • General Garden Use
    • Groundcover

    Planting & Growing

    Blueberry Delight Juniper will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 8 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

    This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for xeriscaping or the moisture-conserving landscape. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selection of a native North American species.
