The needles are highly ornamental and remain green throughout the winter. It produces blue berries from late spring to late winter. Grows up to 6-18 in. (15-45cm) tall and 5-8ft wide in nature. This low-growing shrubby juniper native to northern North America, throughout most of Canada from Yukon east to Newfoundland, and in some of the northern United States.

Interesting: "Juniper berries", which are actually the cones of the juniper tree, are used as a spice and flavouring. It is one of the primary ingredients used to flavour Gin.
In India, local people in Lahaul Valley present juniper leaves to their deities as a folk tradition. It is also useful as a folk remedy for pains and aches, as well as epilepsy and asthma. 


Light: Place the tree outside, year-round, in a bright location with lots of sunlight.
