Ornamental Features

Gold Lace Juniper is a dwarf conifer which is primarily valued in the garden for its broadly spreading habit of growth. It has attractive gold evergreen foliage which emerges lemon yellow in spring. The scale-like sprays of foliage are highly ornamental and turn chartreuse in the fall, which persists throughout the winter.

Landscape Attributes

Gold Lace Juniper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which should be used to full effect.

Planting & Growing

Gold Lace Juniper will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
