Juniperus horizontalis 'Pancake' / Pancake creeping juniper

Juniperus horizontalis 'Pancake' is arguably the lowest growing of all creeping junipers. Barely ever growing any more than 3 inches (7.5 cm) tall, its layered branches with rich blue-green scaly foliage covers the ground, rooting along the way. After 10 years, a mature specimen will have spread up to 32 inches (80 cm) in all directions, making for an ideal living coniferous ground cover.

Bill Janssen of Collectors' Nursery, Battle Ground, Washington introduced this cultivar in the 1990s and it has proven to be a select and desirable garden conifer.

Do you ship Pancake Creeping Juniper? What would be the price, size container and shipping cost?

Thank you.

Hi Julie ... the American Conifer Society does not sell plants, with the exception of the Collectors' Conifer of the Year program ... 'Pancake' has not been selected for this promotion.
