Quick Overview:

Juniperus procumbens, commonly called Japanese garden juniper, is a dwarf, procumbent, shrubby ground cover that grows 8-18? (less frequently to 24?) tall and spreads by long trailing branches to form a dense mat to 10-15? wide. Branches spread parallel to and slightly above the ground. ?Nana? is a dwarf, less vigorous form that features spiny-pointed blue-green needles (to 1/3? long). It typically grows 8-12? tall and spreads to 6? wide over time. Foliage may turn purplish in winter. Fleshy seed cones (blackish berries at maturity) are often absent on cultivated plants.
