JUNIPERUS scopulorum 'Gray Gleam'
Gray Gleam Rocky Mountain Juniper, Rocky Mountain Juniper
This handsome juniper forms a column of gray-green foliage that turns blue in the cold, giving it a striking appearance in winter. A slow-growing cultivar, ‘Gray Gleam’ retains the rugged strength and resilience of its parent, Rocky Mountain juniper, making it well-suited to dry, cold climates and rocky soils.
Growing best in full sun, Rocky Mountain junipers are adaptable to a range of soils, provided they are well-drained. The columnar form of ‘Gray Gleam’ makes it a fine choice for privacy screens and windbreaks. It is also terrific for adding structure, vertical interest and year-round beauty to waterwise plantings and rock gardens.
