The Grey Owl Juniper isn't just a cute name, it's as practical and low-maintenance as they come! This evergreen shrub has broad, arching branches clothed in soft, silver-gray foliage, reminiscent of well, an owl! Very effective planted in groups, as a tall ground cover or low growing hedge. Benefits from some shelter from harsh afternoon sun in desert climates. Requires little maintenance. Drought tolerant when established.
Easily grown in a wide range of soils, including clay, alkaline and compacted soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Feed in early spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.
