Juniperus horizontalis 'Limeglow' / Limeglow creeping juniper (TM) 'LCH47'

Juniperus horizontalis 'Limeglow' has bright chartreuse (greenish-yellow) foliage becoming tinged purple, orange, red, and bronze in winter. Shoots tips bright gold in some climates, greener in others. Semi-juvenile (intermediate) type foliage just like it's parent clone 'Youngstown'. Forms a dense, arching-spreading to low mound as 'Youngstown', far taller than 'Motherlode', 'Golden Spreader' and all the other gold sports of 'Wiltonii'. Resistant to sunburn in hot climates unlike most gold spreading cultivars.

Laurence Hatch 1984 as sport of 'Youngstown' found in Raleigh, NC USA. Distributed by North Carolina State University Arboretum (now J.C. Raulston Arboretum) unofficially since 1985.
