Blue Pacific Juniper

hello

I am trying to find this plant, I cant find it anywhere online. I think this is what I have, at least this is what the nursery told me. I want more of them, they are wonderful during the winter, they need little care, and its green all year long.

If you know where I can find this or any other plant that stays green all year long, I would appreciate it.

Thank you
Melissa

Juniperus conferta 'Blue Pacific'. If this has dropped out of commerce recently for some reason, maybe another J. conferta selection can be used in its place.

I see that this post was from April and its now October but anyway if you can find some "Blue Pacific Juniper" I have been told it roots easily in the ground from cuttings. Just keep it evenly moist.

RE: Blue Pacific Juniper

I just bought 10 of the Blue Pacific Juniper, and our local garden center owner suggests this instead of the Bearberry cotoneaster that I had chosen. The tag says, "an improved shore juniper, capable of spreading 6-8'. Trailing growth with beautiful blue-green foliage." I wanted something that would spread, require minimal maintenance, and would trail down into our ditch.
