Golden Juniper For The Seashore

Juniper – Golden Pfitzer, Juniperus chinensis ‘Pfitzeriana’, is a fast-growing evergreen that stays moderate in height but spreads up to 25 feet! One plant will cover some serious ground! It branches from one low point, off a large trunk, with scaly, red-brown bark.

Both Golden Pfitzer’s old growth foliage and new growth is bright gold, giving the plant its common name. The foliage is pungent when crushed and finely textured. Grey berries are inconspicuous, less than 1/4 inch, and do not pose a litter problem.

This outstanding ornamental can withstand the difficult growing conditions in urban areas or at the seashore, so is one of the more widely planted Junipers in those areas.

Grows best in full sun, but will tolerate some shade. Gold Pfitzer likes well-drained soils, but continuous watering is not needed after initial planting.
