Gonzalez Nurseries: Your Source for Juniperus Horizontalis


Welcome to Gonzalez Nurseries, where we offer the exquisite Juniperus Horizontalis, a creeping conifer belonging to the Cupressaceae family. In its natural habitat, it thrives in exposed, sandy, dry, and rocky areas, requiring acidic or slightly alkaline soil. Though it doesn't grow rapidly, only about 4 to 6 cm per year, over time, it can cover an area of up to 2.00 to 3.00 meters.


Juniperus Horizontalis requires specific care to thrive. It's important to prune new shoots to encourage branching, but older branches should be pruned with caution, as they may stop producing new growth. Fertilization with a special conifer fertilizer in spring and summer is recommended to support healthy growth. Additionally, it's crucial to avoid overwatering, as this conifer is susceptible to fungal diseases.

Unique Traits:

This conifer may exhibit a change in color to purple hues in colder regions, adding a captivating visual dimension to its charm.

Protection Against Pests and Diseases:

While relatively resilient, Juniperus Horizontalis can be prone to fungal infections and suffers from excess water. Our team at Gonzalez Nurseries can provide guidance and products to help protect your plant from these potential issues.

At Gonzalez Nurseries, we are dedicated to offering top-quality plants and expert advice to ensure the success of your gardening endeavors. Explore the beauty and versatility of Juniperus Horizontalis in your landscape, and let us assist you in nurturing its growth and health.
