Juniperus horizontalis 'Lime Glow' is no longer available.

With bright lime green-yellow foliage that turns coppery-red in autumn, this dwarf conifer will brighten up any space. Growing to just 0.8 x 0.8 metres in 20 years, Juniperus horizontalis Lime Glow spreads low to the ground and has up-reaching branches that add great architectural appeal whether it is planted within a bed or used as a small specimen shrub.

Lime Glow Juniper is tolerant of both urban pollution and drought once it has established, but does not like having wet feet, so is suited to a free-draining site. A position in full sun to partial shade will suit this colourful ground covering Juniperus variety.

Planting Advice for Juniperus Horizontalis Lime Glow Conifers

Our pot grown Lime Glow Juniper trees can be planted at any time of year. Firstly, remove weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole, then dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide.  To help Juniper establish more effectively, sprinkle Mycorrhizal root grow in the hole.

Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. If your soil is poor, mix 50% of the original soil with 50% high quality compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems.

Aftercare Advice for Lime Glow Juniper trees

If you’re planting Juniper trees in spring, summer or dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. Keep an eye on young trees and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this.

Pruning Advice for Juniperus Horizontalis Lime Glow Conifers

Ornamental Juniper trees do not require a lot of pruning. Simply remove any dead, diseased or awkwardly placed branches from your Lime Glow Juniper tree as and when you see them.

Delivery Timescales

All trees are carefully packed by our experienced team and most are delivered within a week of placing the order (please allow up to 12 working days during busy periods). There's no need to be in to receive your order and you can request where it is left via the checkout.

There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached and mature trees (trees over 2.5m in height) because we group orders together for specialist delivery - we will contact these customers to notify them of the delivery date.

Trees on pre-order are still growing and an estimate of when they will be ready is given on the basket page. Orders will be despatched when all trees are ready.

Gift trees and those required by a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure, although we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre, so please make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

The product table at the bottom of the page gives the forms and sizes available for this variety. Please note, photos are a guideline as all plants are unique. Below are definitions of terms:

Supplied Size: Height measured from the top of the pot.

Single Stem / Pruned and shaped: Classic shaped tree with a single stem that has had pruning to help create a beautiful, natural shape.

Top grafted: A height noted next to this form refers to the length of clear stem, which will not grow taller. Only the head of branches will develop. Top grafted trees do not require complicated pruning and are ideal for small spaces.

Feathered: A feathered tree has branches from the bottom of the trunk all the way up. These branches can be removed if a clear stem is required.

Multi Stem: A multi stem tree has two or more stems arising from or near ground level, growing from one root system. Take care to buy a true multi-stem like all ours and not those that are 3 saplings in a pot to cheaply imitate them.

Bush: A plant with many stems low down, rather than one clear stem.

Clump: Several plants in one pot that can give the appearance of a multi stemmed and very bushy tree.

Climber: A plant that is a natural climber and will be delivered usually running up a bamboo cane, ready to position in the garden.

Standard Tree: A more mature tree with an upright clear stem of approximately 1.8m-2.0m (measured from the soil to the lowest branches of the crown). Standards are available in different forms relating to their girth size (circumference of the stem measured 1m above soil level), not height:

Standard  either 6-10cm or 8-10cm girth, approximately 2.5-3.0m in height
Premium Standard  10-12cm girth, approximately 3.0-3.5m in height
Heavy Standard  12-14cm girth, approximately 3.5-4.5m in height
Extra Heavy Standard 14-16cm girth approximately 4.0-6m in height
