    Has anyone seen a juniper with red winter foliage?

    The foliage is still soft, looks like a rocky mountain juniper, have been thinking about collecting it this spring for a few months but this coloration is giving me pause.

    Bonsai soil

    I am moving pretty soon, so I am planning on going into the woods and taking about ten junipers with me in buckets. Where can i get substrate in bulk, that will suit a junipers needs. (Drains clearly, etc) They will most likely be staying in there for several years.
