The Broadmoor Juniper is a lovely low-growing coniferous shrub that quickly spreads its graceful branches, beautifully coloring available space with its dense dark-green foliage. Broadmoor is also well-known for the pleasant pine-scented fragrance that it emits, making it the perfect candidate for planting near walkways and decks where its aroma can be enjoyed. Another interesting quality of Broadmoor is that its richly colored foliage actually changes to different shades of green throughout the year with the seasons! Summer brings a lighter hue of emerald-green to the needles with the increased amount of sunlight, and the coming of winter darkens the hue to a deeper forest-green that provides some much-needed color during the cold winter months. Broadmoor is is an extraordinarily resilient shrub that's ideal for harsh and windy locations such as coastal and mountainous climates. This shrub is actually native to mountainous regions in Eastern Europe where it still grows wild, enduring scorching summers, freezing winters, and depending solely on natural rainfall for irrigation! These beautiful and hardy qualities have caused Broadmoor to become one of the most popular groundcover plants in the United States, especially on coastlines and Midwestern states. Broadmoor is most often planted as a groundcover but can also be kept as a low-growing shrub that's perfect for planting near foundations, decks, and sidewalks. If grown without pruning, this Juniper reaches two to three feet in height with a fast spread of eight to ten feet. Very drought and wind-tolerant, won't be bothered by hardly any animals, and cold hardy down to -40°F! The Broadmoor Juniper is an excellently low-maintenance, beautifully-colored, and richly-scented scented evergreen that adds a new depth to any landscape!
