Green Mound Juniper

the "Karate Kid" tree
Juniperus procumbens nana





This outdoor bonsai is strongly indentified with the art of bonsai.



Mounds on itself with age, a mature mass planting reminds one of a choppy sea. The tree develops a slight purple cast or "bronzing" in winter. The natural movement of the Green Mound's trunk and branches captures the essence of bonsai.

Keep Outdoors in a sunny location.
WILL TOLERATE FREEZING, but PROTECT FROM STRONG WINDS & SEVERE COLD.
Spray water daily through the foliage.
Water when the soil moderately dries, but do not let the soil dry out.
Fertilize at one-third strength during the growing season.
Finger-pinch the new growth to maintain the size & shape
A great plant for beginners.
