Quick Overview:

‘Blue Star’ is a slow-growing cultivar with a low-mounded, hemispherical habit. Typically grows to only 1 foot tall after 5 years, but eventually matures over time to 2-3′ high. Features awl-shaped, silver blue foliage which is attractive year-round. Sometimes commonly called singleseed juniper because each bluish, berry-like, female cone contains but a single seed.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)

Description

Grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Adapts to a wide range of soils. Performs well in dryish, sandy soils with good drainage. Somewhat intolerant of the hot and humid growing conditions of the deep South. Intolerant of wet soils. Generally needs no pruning, but plant height can be controlled over time if desired by pruning.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
