Botanical Name

Plant Common Name

Chinese Juniper, Maney Chinese Juniper

General Description

Juniperus chinensis 'Maney' is extra cold-hardy, and an ideal evergreen shrub for difficult, northern climates. Its horizontally layered, upward-curving branches display a rich, blue coloring that holds exceptionally well over winter. Its small, bluish-gray, berry-like fruits appear on female plants, and are highly attractive to many birds.

Juniper ‘Maney’ requires full sun and grows in almost any type of soil as long as it is well-drained. Pruning is not advisable for this variety, as it could promote shading and browning of lower branches. It is most beautiful when allowed to grow into its natural shape. 'Maney' makes a fine hedge plant, and is lovely when used in mixed borders or combined with other evergreens and shrubs of varying sizes and habits.
