Juniperus SAN JOSE - Single Plants

by Holly Hill Nurseries

This offering is for single plants of this variety. These are growing in 2 inch containers.

Chinese juniper is a dioecious evergreen conifer that is native to China, Japan, Mongolia and the Himalayas. It is usually seen in the wild as a conical tree to 50’ tall and 20’ wide, but also appears in much shorter shrubby or spreading forms. Foliage is dark green. Brown bark on mature stems peels in strips. Although species plants are rarely sold in commerce, a large number of cultivated varieties ranging in size from large trees to large/small shrubs to low-growing groundcovers have become popular ornamental landscape plants. Chinese juniper leaves come in two types: scale-like (adult) and awl/needle-like (juvenile). Cones (pollen and seed bearing) appear on different plants. Male plants produce catkin-like pollen cones. Female plants produce fleshy, berry-like, whitish-blue seed cones that usually acquire violet-brown tones as they mature over two years. 'San Jose' forms a tough, low-growing ground cover that rises to 1-1.5' tall but spreads by rigid stems somewhat irregularly to 6-8' wide. Sage green foliage (foliage on young plants is mostly needle-like, but foliage on mature plants is a combination of needle-like and scale-like). Foliage is attractive throughout the year. Zones 4 to 9
