The Blue Star Juniper is one of the most popular compact or small bush junipers for garden plantings everywhere in the temperate world, truly a ‘star’ of a plant.
‘Blue Star’ has a bushy, loosely-dome-shaped form, with some projecting shoots. Sometimes it is denser and more uniform than in the illustration here.
The Blue Star juniper has prickly ‘juvenile’-type foliage of a silvery-blue colour. It is usually dense and well-furnished. The growth rate is fairly slow, a plant making up to 3 feet (1 metre) across in ten years, and a little less high.
