I'm thinking of using nana juniper to cover a slope on my property (full sun exposure). Does anyone know juniper nana's growth habit when planted on slopes (mine is approximately about a 50 degree angle)? To be specific, I want to know if it grows downward, so that I shoud plant it near the top of the slope and it would cascade down, or if it grows from its center in all directions so that I should give it more than a foot of headroom at the top of the slope.
not more than 2-3 inches, if that. they are slow growers, or would not qualify as dwarf. here's a pic of one from shortly after it was planted. they've really filled in. I think some of the longer of the new shoots are under the mulch.
