Juniperus horizontalis, commonly called creeping juniper, is a procumbent evergreen shrub that is native to Alaska, Canada and the northern U.S. from New England to New York to the Great Lakes, Wyoming and Montana. Distribution in the northern U.S. is somewhat spotty. It is typically found growing in rocky or sandy soils including rock outcroppings, stony slopes, coastal cliffs, prairies, sand dunes and stream banks. ‘Wiltonii’ is a female cultivar noted for its excellent, dense, prostrate form, typically growing to 4-6” tall and spreading to 6-8’ wide. It features silver blue foliage that acquires purple tones in winter.
