Juniperus procumbens 'Nana'

Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper

One of the best evergreens for hot, poor, dry soils in city conditions, Junipers are found in almost any height, width, shape, and foliage color. They range from ground covers and shrubs to 65-foot-tall cone-bearing trees. Ground covers include Juniperus procumbens, Juniperus sargentii, and Juniperus tamariscifolia. Shrubs include Pfitzer, Blue Star, and Armstrong junipers. Trees include Juniperus scopulorum and Juniperus virginiana. Most have round, blue or reddish fruits that follow their small white flowers. Foliage color, generally blue- or gray-green, may change with the seasons. Requires well-drained soils. Will not tolerate shade or waterlogged soil. Watch for spider mites, aphids, twig borers, and Phomopsis twig blight, which kills new shoots in early wet springs. Prune or shear to shape. Easily transplanted.
