Juniperus Chinensis / Chinese Juniper

Chinese juniper is a variable evergreen tree or shrub native to China and Japan. The needle-like or scale-like leaves are green to blue-green and usually hold their color in winter. The small, berry-like fruit (on female plants) ripens from whitish blue to dark brown. Chinese juniper prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Many of its cultivars are common in gardens, where they are used for screening, windbreaks, and hedging.

Succeeds in most soils if they are well drained, preferring a neutral or slightly alkaline soil. Succeeds in chalky soils. Established plants are drought tolerant, succeeding in hot dry positions. A slow-growing and rather short-lived tree.

The plants produce new growth from early May to the end of August and can make 50cm a year increases in height when young.
A very ornamental plant, there are many named varieties.

The crushed foliage has a rather sour resinous scent. Trees are usually dioecious but occasional monoecious trees occur. Male and female flowers are required if fruit and seed are to be produced.
