(PP 5948 expired) We really love this 1985 introduction from Oregon's Iseli nursery that was reportedly discovered in 1980 after lightning hit a patch of Juniperus horizontalis 'Wiltonii'. The result was a beautiful golden-foliage US native (Canada south to Illinois) groundcover juniper that we have enjoyed for over two decades in our rock garden. For us, Juniperus 'Mother Lode' makes a 4' wide, slowly growing patch that looks great in both summer and winter...superb!
