Genus Overview: Juniperus

Common Name: Juniper

The Juniper is one of the toughest and most versatile evergreen landscape plants. It ranges from spreading ground cover types to large conical or pyramidal trees. Upright varieties are excellent as a screen, hedge, single specimen or as a windbreak. The low growing varieties are limitless when used as ground cover, foundation planting, grouping, or mass planting and to soften rock gardens. Needle-like foliage ranges in color from lustrous dark green to light green, blue, silver-blue, yellow and shades in-between. This resilient plant adapts to a variety of soil types and can withstand wind, drought, heat and humidity. Excellent for erosion control and can even withstand a little nibbling for deer and rabbits.
