Copper Delight™ Juniper -- Juniperus communis var. depressa ‘ReeDak’ (RFM-01)


green plant copper plant

This male selection from the North Dakota Badlands produces a very dense, slightly mounded form growing 15 to 22 inches in height. It produces very attractive, lighter green foliage than Blueberry Delight® and in late fall the foliage changes to a coppery-bronze color, particularly the new tip growth, which adds interest to the plant in the dormant season. Drought and alkaline tolerant, it grows well in full sun as well as in partially shaded sites. Effective in foundation plantings. Reaches semi-mature height in about 10 years. Hardy in USDA Zone 2b-3.
