Plant Families / Juniperus - Junipers
Prized for their ornamental qualities and undemanding cultivation, Juniperus (Juniper) are evergreen shrubs or trees with aromatic, scale-like, or sharply pointed needle-like foliage. Whether blue, green, or gold, the evergreen foliage brings year-round color and texture to the garden. Some Junipers make terrific creeping groundcovers, others are shrubby or upright in habit and make handsome specimen plants, not to forget the tall columnar trees that form a splendid exclamation point in the landscape. Full sun lovers, Junipers are not finicky about soil conditions as long they are well-drained. Drought resistant, poor soil tolerant, deer seldom browse them.
