Juniperus squamata 'Prostrata' / Prostrate Singleseed Juniper

Prostrate form with Blue foliage that eventually mounds in the center. This species is resistant to Phomopsis tip blight that is so troubling with the Juniperus horizontalis cultivars. Often confused with Juniperus procumbens that is NOT resistant to phomopsis needle blight.

Daniel Walker

Hello, I work at a historic garden in Calgary, Alberta called Reader Rock Garden and I am looking for some seeds or cuttings of the above plant. I have to follow a specific historic plant list that the original gardener William Reader planted or trialed in the garden between 1913-1943 when he passed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

Hi Daniel ... be aware that seed from Juniperus squamata 'Prostrata' will get you only the species. Cultivars can only be propagated asexually.

The plant above is in Hidden Lake Gardens in Michigan. I recommend reaching out to them for cuttings. They're generally very receptive, especially to ACS members.
