Juniperus horizontalis 'Plumosa Compacta Youngstown' is a compact Andorra Juniper that is more resistant to possible Phomopsis Juniper Blight fungus that can damage or kill some species of groundcover junipers, as the Creeping Juniper (J. horizontalis) and its cultivars, especially the Andorra types, during years with long, cool, wet springs. This cultivar is commonly sold at many conventional nurseries. It is also a male clone, so it does not bear the juniper "berries."
