Green Sargent Juniper

The Juniper ‘Green Sargent’, Juniperus chinensis sargentii ‘Viridis’, has broad spreading, thick, heavy branches that make an excellent ground cover.

‘Green Sargent’ has handsome, dark-green foliage that holds its rich green color all year long. This shrub plant is a salt-water tolerant evergreen shrub that can be grown by the water’s edge.

It will control erosion as a dense ground cover base plant for your landscape too. ‘Green Sargent’ is useful as a specimen or in small groups in landscape beds or a low-growing shrub under low windows in foundation plantings.
