Juniper S. Tamariscifolia commonly called a “Tam” juniper by some is a densely branched evergreen plant with symmetrically spreading mounds of foliage that make it an excellent choice as a large scale groundcover.

Tam junipers spread but are not ground hugging.  They make graceful wide mounds that are lovely as individual specimens in fields of gravel or bark.  Juniper S. Tamariscifolia adds accent to a mass of other flatter Juniper that might be used for erosion control on banks and slopes.
