Creeping Juniper
Variegated Dogwood

Creeping Juniper is a low maintenance, spreading, ground cover shrub capable of growing in some of the worst soil and rocky conditions.

You will love this shrubs' pleasant fragrance and year-round color. A beautiful accent or foundation plant, Creeping Juniper has scaly foliage and is commonly used by landscapers to add texture under trees or flower beds. Consider planting Creeping Juniper in areas where grass is difficult to mow or maintain.

Variegated Dogwood, also known as Silver Leaf Dogwood, is a small shrub that is often used in the first row of a shelterbelt, as a hedge, or for soil stabilization projects. It has the same distinctive red bark and white flowers and berries as Red Osier Dogwood.

The key difference between the two is the leaves. Where Red Osier's leaves are green throughout, Variegated Dogwood has a white outline around each leaf. This gives Variegated Dogwood a distinctive look.
