    Foundling Juniper (Juniperus virginiana??)

    Hi Everyone, I was walking my dogs through a local park yesterday and came across a downed oak tree. We’ve had a lot of rain and high winds lately. When the oak fell it uprooted some other plants at its base. This Juniper (at least I think it’s a juniper, possibly juniperus virginiana from...

    Itoigawa behaving like a teenager.

    One of my junipers, an Itoigawa, wasn't reppoted, hard pruned, trimmed or trashed around for one and a half years. The only work done to the tree was wiring it by the end of the winter. It is healthy and growing fast, but... As you can see, there is a mix of scale and juvenile shoots, and I see...

    You be the judge. Blue Pfitzer Juniper

    Sup Nuts. Thought I’d have a little fun with this one. I’ve always done as I pleased in terms of styling, but I thought I’d open the floor on this Blue Pfitzer Juniper I bought for $30. Purchased this one just over a month ago. And all I did was run a few skewers through the dense root ball...

    Styling advice?

    I picked up this blue shore juniper from the local Home Depot. I may have gotten a bit prune happy but I’ve got to say it is interesting to look at... maybe a bit thin but it should thicken up over time. Any input or advice helps :)

    Collected Redberry Juniper (Juniperus pinchotii)

    I collected another juniper today that I believed was and Ashe juniper but on closer inspection I believe it is a redberry juniper. The foliage looks a bit different and the bark is definitely not as dark as Ashe juniper. If anyone can verify ID I would appreciate it! Either way it’s a great...

There’s lots of small juniper out where I collected this but very few with the great deadwood and character that this one has. Combine that with the movement it possesses and I think we...
