Juniper Species


#1

Not sure which juniper species this is. Also, is this a running or mounding juniper? Also, is the sharp needles indicating juvenile growth as to opposed the flat needles?


(Jonas Dupuich) #2

Could be a procumbens juniper, though hard to say with the mix of juvenile and scale foliage.


#3

Should there be juvenile growth?


(Jonas Dupuich) #4

It’s not unusual for there to be a mix of juvenile and scale growth on procumbens junipers, particularly on older specimens.


#5

Is it typical of foliage lower in the branch to brown and fall off as the foliage on the tips grow?


(Jonas Dupuich) #6

Yes - it’s the inside foliage that browns and falls away first.
