Icee Blue Juniper is a low-growing evergreen with silvery-blue foliage with an occasional purple cast. It grows to 8 feet wide but will only reach 4 inches tall. This variety is resistant to dying back in the middle.
It prefers full sun and can handle heat and drought. It will tolerate a wide variety of soils except for wet soils. This shrub works well in rock gardens, as a groundcover near foundations, and as erosion control on slopes.
