There are numerous cultivars of Juniperus x media from all around the world. ‘Winter Gold’ is a magnificent spreading golden form. It has stunning golden foliage during late winter to early autumn and doesn’t burn as easily as other golden forms. It has a spreading habit and will get to about 1.5m after five years with a spread of approximately 2.5 m. ‘Winter Gold’ will grow in full sun to shade and tolerates all but very wet soils. It doesn’t require a prune unless it is getting too large but an annual feed with Osmocote Outdoor Trees and Shrubs will keep it healthy and looking its best.
Juniperus x media ‘Winter Gold’ is a New Zealand selection first seen by Clive Larkman at Bruntwood Nursery in Hamilton. He was impressed by the depth of golden foliage. It looks great in a conifer garden, as a specimen plant in the lawn, on the patio in a large tub or under large deciduous trees. Plant in the garden with formal plants like Agapanthus ‘Purple Cloud’, Heuchera ‘Green Spice’ or Gardenia ‘Fragrant Star’.
