Height: 24 inches

Spread: 5 feet

Sunlight:  full sun 

Hardiness Zone: 3b

Other Names: Pfitzer Juniper

Description:

A stunning color accent landscape evergreen; wide spreading and sprawling with arching branches in a striking gold, slightly droopy tips; a superb groundcover or massing plant for color with true character of habit when mature

Ornamental Features:

Gold Coast Juniper has attractive chartreuse foliage which emerges gold in spring. The scale-like leaves are ornamentally significant but remain chartreuse through the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes:

Gold Coast Juniper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which should be used to full effect.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Gold Coast Juniper is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Groundcover
  • General Garden Use
  • Mass Planting

Plant Characteristics:

Gold Coast Juniper will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.

This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
