Low growing, spreading junipers make good, drought tolerant groundcovers. For best results avoid the super short (less than 10” high) varieties such as “wilton carpet,” or “Bar Harbor,” as weeds more easily penetrate their thinner leaf canopy.
Instead, grow juniper varieties that are between 1 to 2 feet in height like “Broadmoor,” “Buffalo,” or “Calgary Carpet.” They have less weed problems and are very hardy. While they are drought tolerant they do need regular moisture during establishment.
