            Mike's Opinion

"

The Calgary carpet juniper is an interesting specimen, it is a low spreading evergreen ground cover with soft attractive scale like lime green foliage and arching branches; it can withstand very cold climate temperatures up to zone 3. The Calgary carpet juniper is also tolerant to heat and drought like climates and is also tolerant to animals like rabbits deer.
