Procumbens nana question


Reaction score
The tips of some of the newer growth on my juniper are swollen and brownish (no picture yet but I will take one if needed). It's just the tip, maybe 1/8", and it's swollen to about twice the width of the needles/growth. Is this normal? Is it the buds getting ready for winter?

Just a thought but could it be producing seeds?
Sounds like it is just the plant flowering, not very showy are they?
BonsaiSteve, I had a shipaku that did this. I posted the pics here on B-nut and will try to find the link.

Look at the pics on "Old Shimpaku" on May 18, 2009 and see if these photos look like what you are describing.

I don't know how to add the link to this message otherwise I would have.

They are not very "showy" no, they are really just small swollen brown tips at the end of a lot of the growth. I will post pictures.
