'Parsonii Juniper' - Juniperus davurica 'Parsonii' Available in 1 Gallon and 3 Gallon
Parson's juniper is a ground hugging evergreen conifer with flat, feathery branches and both scaly and needlelike leaves. Young leaves are like tiny scales that are held closely against the twigs. Older leaves are prickly needles a 0.5 in (1.3 cm) or so long. The foliage is bluish-green and has a soft texture. Single specimens grow in a domelike mound up 2-3 ft (0.6-0.9 m) tall with a spread of 4-10 ft (1.2-3.1 m).
Two other cultivars of J. davurica are 'Expansa Aureospicata', which is mottled with golden splashes, and 'Expansa Variegata' which has creamy white variegated foliage.
Culture Tolerates acidic to slightly alkaline soils. Has a very high salt tolerance. Light Full sun for densest specimens. Partial shade will result in a thinner groundcover. Moisture Drought tolerant Hardiness USDA Zones 4-11. Propagation Best propagated by tip cuttings or stem layering. Cuttings of ripe wood taken in fall and winter can be started without mist or bottom heat. Parson's juniper also can be propagated by layering: Girdle (scrape away the bark from) a young, fast growing stem about 10 in (25.4 cm) back from the tip, bend it up, and bury the girdled part in the ground. It may take several months for roots to develop before you can sever the new plant from the parent. Leave it in place for a few more weeks, then prune off the growing tip to encourage the new roots even more. Eventually, you should be able to dig up the new plant and replant it where you need it.
