Description

Juniperus genus (Juniper). This conifer is distinguished from the other trees and shrubs by producing seeds which are exposed on the scales of woody fruits called cones. Adult plants usually have scale-like leaves. This genus contains about 50 species and has a widespread distribution.

Characteristics

Evergreens, Fragrants

Origin

Widespread

Interest and use

Ground cover. Suitable for coastal conditions.

Cultivation

If the conifer produces more than one leader, to maintain the general conical habit remove all but one leader. To restrict the height of the plant, the leader can be cut back.

Propagation

Seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true). Evergreen current growth cuttings in autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.

Pests, diseases or disorders

Honey fungus and scale insects may be a problem; young plants are more susceptible.
