Mother Lode Juniper

Juniperus horizontalis ‘Mother Lode’ has bright, golden-yellow foliage in spring and summer which transitions to rich, burgundy plum undertones during the winter giving this extremely flat, ground-hugging juniper long-term garden interest. Discovered at Iseli Nursery in 1982 as a sport on J. h. ‘Wiltoni’, it performs admirably in full or partial sun. Let it cascade over a bank, define a mound, or cover ground planted in masses. Use with other colorful plants for an exciting statement in the garden.
