Grey Owl Juniper

Juniperus 'Grey Owl', J. virginiana 'Grey Owl'  

Silvery gray-green foliage adorns this broadly spreading but low growing evergreen female Juniper that adorns itself with blue-gray cones each summer that are sure to attract a variety of birds and other wildlife. Grey Owl's low spreading habit and steely gray color lend it to use in the garden and landscape where it contrasts wonderfully with darker colored foliage. It also has bonsai potential. Provide a well drained soil and full to mostly sunny conditions. Dr. Michael Dirr says that this is "Among the best of the shrubby spreading junipers." in Dirr's Encyclopedia of Trees & Shrubs. Grey Owl is often sold as a cultivar of Eastern Red Cedar, Juniperus virginiana, and it may very well be, but some, like Dr. Dirr, suggest that it may be a hybrid that includes the Pfitzer Juniper in its parentage. Caterpillar host: Juniper Hairstreak and Siva Juniper Hairstreak. Item# 10894

Rosa's Blush Darrow's Dwarf Blueberry

Vaccinium darrowii 'Rosa's Blush'  

Yes it fruits but it's fine textured evergreen foliage is fantastic! The bright pink new growth of spring matures to a dusty blue-green with hints of pink in summer, followed by deep purplish-blue in fall which deepens through winter. Clusters of 3/8" edible blue fruit that ripen in May-June, follow the light pink bell-shaped flowers of early spring. Rosa's Blush is grown mainly for its compact habit and beautifully colored, fine textured, ever-changing foliage as the berries ripen a few at the time over a long period. Pick the blue-black fruit once fully soft for the best flavor and like most blueberries a cross pollinator is required for the best fruit set. Item# 9206.
