The name of this tough, hardy cultivar almost says it all. “Blue” points to the color of the sharp, over-lapping, densely arranged needles. “Carpet” acknowledges the plant’s low, spreading form and might suggest its adaptable nature (it tolerates dry soils). Even “squamata” refers to the scaly bark typical of the species. Together, these features add up to an excellent, ground-covering choice for banks, slopes and other challenging sites.
