Juniper Shrubs for Sale Online
Juniper vary size and shape. Junipers are an easy to grow evergreen and can be low spreading ground-cover type plants, mid-sized spreading shrubs or columnar, upright types. Junipers are one of the most low maintenance plants you can grow and are excellent choices for any landscape. Junipers thrive in full sun and well-drained almost dry soils. Junipers thrive where little else will grow. Although they prefer acidic soil, they will grow equally as well in soil that is not acidic. They also do very well in Containers or Patio Pots due to their ability to withstand drought conditions. Junipers can be used for groundcovers and foundation plantings as well as to frame an entrance or create privacy. They are especially helpful in preventing soil erosion, weed control, and planting on difficult to access parts of a landscape where they will receive little care. Junipers are very drought tolerant and perform quite well in rock gardens or just plain rocky soil. Most varieties of juniper require very little pruning if any.
