PLANT DESCRIPTIONS & FACTS
Juniperus chinensis x pfitzeriana 'Gold Star'
Very similar in growth habit to 'Gold Lace'. Nice medium green foliage is brightly tipped in golden yellow. This gives the plant almost a "frosted" look, almost like you had dipped each little branch at the very ends in yellow paint. Very pretty plant - also very hardy. A sport of Pfitzer Juniper that is excellent for a mid range foundation / hedge type planting. Also works for accent plantings as well.
Golden yellow highlights will fade during winter months, but return again with the onset of warmer weather / temps in the spring.
Has slightly lower growth habit than Gold Lace or Gold Tip Pfitzer........and foliage is much more juvenile, slightly more dense at maturity.

Hardiness Zone Map & Information Page
Full sun to partial shade. Best color display in full sun exposure locations.
Average to slightly acidic & sandy - well drained. Will adapt to wide range of soil conditions - drainage is a must. Mulching recommended.
Foliage Color & Texture:
very typical of most juniper varieties - especially the Pfitzer types. Slightly more needlelike foliage than either Blue Pfitzer, or Gold Lace. Color is a good medium green base that is highlighted / tipped in bright golden yellow. These highlights will fade during the winter months, but return with the onset of spring & warmer weather.
Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts:
None to mention with this particular variety.
Diseases / Insects:
Rather trouble free juniper - both Phomopsis & Kabatina blights have been observed on specimens if kept too wet for an extended period of time. Adequate drainage is a must.
No specific recommendations - will depend on the purpose intended.
Deer Resistance Rating:
Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 -
- 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 -
- 10 ] Highest Resistance
Fertilization / Feeding:
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend
for use with all of our evergreen species. However, either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting.
may be used at anytime.
Additional Features & Characteristics:
This variety has shown itself to have exceptional drought tolerance, and a fairly low water requirement once established.
Handle With Caution:
As with many juniper varieties, Gold Star Juniper tends to have a rather prickly foliage texture that can cause minor irritation to skin with excessive contact.
