'Glauca Prostrata' is a prostrate form that grows to 1-2' tall but spreads along the ground to 6-10' wide on rigid horizontal branching. Silver-blue needles are attractive year round. It's excellent as a groundcover and in rock gardens.
Easily grown in average, acidic, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates some light shade. Prefers rich, moist soils. Although established plants have some drought tolerance, soils should be kept consistently moist and not allowed to dry out in the early years.
Generally prefers cool climates and will struggle in the heat and humidity of hot summer climates. (Source: Missouri Botanical Garden)
