Description

Lovely texture in a durable groundcover. 

Montana Moss juniper brings a refreshing blue-green tone to groundcover junipers. Its moss-like foliage is soft to the touch; its ability to withstand deer, drought, heat, and sun makes it a new go-to choice for those who need tough evergreen groundcovers.
