After the Destruction of Winter, May I Recommend an Evergreen

South side of my 'Blue Star' juniper

Okay, I know it is not ever really green, but a pretty steely blue.  Notice it is not dead.  It is not sun scalded.   It does not look like it took any sort of hit what so ever after one of the worse winters in more than 100 years.  During the winter it does take on a nice purple hue, but it is always nice to look at.  This specimen is ten years old and about 18 inches high and maybe just over two feet wide.

If you are looking to replace your evergreens damage by this year's winter, this sport with its soft, juvenile foliage might be just the right plant for you.
