Green Mound Juniper need to
experience seasonal changes
and should be kept
outdoors year round.



The Japanese landscaper uses the Japanese Garden Juniper for shaping around stones; it oozes around objects in a natural way and the dense foliage takes on the windblown look all by itself. It can become a real specimen in small spaces.


Juniperus procumbens 'Nana' is strongly indentified with the art of bonsai.

The Japanese garden juniper 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 trunk and branches captures the essence of bonsai.
