Blue Rug Juniper Care

Planting: Choose a well-drained location with full sunlight for your Blue Rug Juniper. Ensure proper spacing to accommodate its mature spread, typically around 6 to 8 feet.

Watering: Water your Blue Rug Juniper regularly during the first growing season to establish its roots. Once established, it is drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering. Water deeply during dry spells, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

Soil: Blue Rug Juniper thrives in well-drained soil. Amend heavy or clay soils with organic matter to improve drainage. It can tolerate a wide range of soil pH levels.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the plant’s stems to prevent rot.

Fertilizing: Blue Rug Juniper typically does not require fertilization. However, if desired, apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring. Avoid excessive fertilization, as it may lead to excessive growth and reduced vigor.

Pruning: Blue Rug Juniper requires minimal pruning. Trim back any dead or damaged branches as needed to maintain its shape. Lightly shear the foliage to encourage dense growth and maintain its desired form.

Protection: Blue Rug Juniper is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, monitor for common issues such as spider mites or fungal diseases, and treat promptly if necessary.

Winter Care: Blue Rug Juniper is cold-hardy and typically requires minimal winter care. However, providing a layer of mulch around the base of the plant can help protect the roots from freezing temperatures.
