About Juniper

There are more than 170 cultivated varieties of juniper, including low-growing ground cover or edging plants, shrubs and trees. The shapes include narrow columns, tight pyramids, and rounded forms that spread as wide as their height or more. The fragrant foliage can be either needles or overlapping scales.

Some shrubs have both types of foliage because the leaves start out as needles and transition to scales as they mature. Juniper shrubs are either male or female. The male flowers provide the pollen for the female flowers, and once pollinated, the females produce berries or cones. One male shrub can provide pollen for several females.

    Sunlight Full sun to partail shade.
    Watering Water young shrubs during dry spells for the first two years. Afterward, the shrub is drought tolerant and can make do with what nature provides.
    Soil Junipers grow in any type of soil as long as it is well-drained.
    Temperature They can be found in a wide range of temperatures, except for areas of extreme heat or cold.
