    Juniper Tree Overview

    The genus Juniperus contains 75 accepted species of coniferous evergreen shrubs and trees in the Cupressaceae family. They have a wide distribution in the Northern Hemisphere, ranging from arctic to tropical habitats. They can be tall trees or columnar, spreading or prostrate shrubs with aromatic scale-like or needle-like leaves and small spherical cones. Widely cultivated as garden and parkland ornamentals, these species are often bred for their variety of colours, shapes and forms.

    How to propagate Juniper Tree
