  • Hardy Evergreen
  • Well Saturated Gold Color
  • Winter Interest

A glowing and vibrant gold never goes out of style in the garden. Lucky for you, the Gold Lace Juniper (Juniperus chinensis ‘Gold Lace’) will keep your interest and admiration year after year as its foliage undergoes a transformation from deep forest green to vibrant yellow.

This Juniper is one of the most pristine and even gold Junipers on the market. The Gold Lace Juniper’s new growth is flashy and intense. And as time passes, its innermost foliage becomes an attractive forest green. Its coloration adds brilliance and highlights the Gold Lace Juniper’s thin and intricate feathery needles.

With its lovely golden hues, the Gold Lace Juniper makes an ideal foundation planting that will contrast and harmonize with your other landscaping. As an evergreen, it will keep your yard looking verdant and healthy all year long. Because of its green-to-yellow ombre, it also looks fabulous as a stand-alone planting. As a Juniper, this plant will establish on slopes or rocky terrain.

A little Gold Lace Juniper goes a long way. When planning your planting, provide your Gold Lace Juniper with room to spread. While staying under 6-feet in height, this prized plant will spread outward. It goes quickly, making it great for near-immediate erosion control.

Plant your Gold Lace Junipers with a mix of other Juniper varieties. It plays well off blues and green and will shine its brightest in full sun. Water it well until it’s established then you can let it be. This low-maintenance shrub only requires additional care during times of drought or if you want to prune it to refine its shape and encourage new growth.

Prune in early spring by grabbing the tip of the longer branches and snipping those branches back into the body of the plant. This reduces the size and encourages new growth behind the cut where you want new growth to originate from. This method keeps the plant shaggy and natural!

Gold and glorious: the Gold Lace Juniper is ready to light up your landscape.
