Juniperus Horizontalis Bar Harbor (Bar Harbor Juniper, Creeping Juniper)
Similar to the Creeping Blue Chip Juniper, but with a more vivid green colouring. A good choice for covering sloped surfaces to prevent soil erosion.
Junipers in general are very useful in the garden for their solid colours and for their ability to grow in highly difficult conditions. As the “Horizontalis” in its name suggests, it grow outwards and is an excellent choice as a ground cover. The Bar Harbor Juniper is faster growing than its cousin the Creeping Blue Chip and can reach a greater size at maturity, both sideways and vertically.
Because the Bar Harbor Juniper grows outwards rather than upwards, we have listed the horizontal size of the plants that we sell:
