A very horizontal and compact form of Pfitzer juniper with richly green and extremely soft foliage throughout the season, very fine texture, habit tends to spray outwards along the ground; a superb choice for a bright green groundcover

Kallay's Compact Juniper has attractive light green foliage. The scale-like leaves are highly ornamental and remain light green throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

Kallay's Compact Juniper is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which should be used to full effect.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

 

Kallay's Compact Juniper will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 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 not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.

  • Mature Height: 3 feet
  • Mature Width: 6 feet
  • Sunlight: Sun
  • Soil Conditions: Moist (Typical)

Plants are constantly growing, ever-changing, and therefore unique. The plant you receive may vary from the photo, but rest assured, it holds the same glorious potential!
