Juniper 'Sea Green' Characteristics
'Sea Green' are easy to grow low maintenance hedges with fragrant leaves and a soft appearance. The leaves often attract birds, but are not interesting to deer and rabbits. The evergreen needles bring beautiful winter interest.
Their tolerance to a wide array of soils and their spreading root systems means that they can be effective in erosion control. They are popular choices in city gardens as they are not vulnerable to city air pollution.
'Sea Green' is resistant to cedar apple rust, a common blight among other junipers. However, root rot is likely if left in poorly drained soils. Insects can occasionally make their home in the needles, but can be controlled with pesticides if desired.
