Junipers, Juniperus, are hardy conifers and one of the most versatile and drought-tolerant evergreens. They start off with spiky foliage at first, but then mature into flatter and softer foliage. The color varies in foliage to be dark green, light green, silver-blue or they can have a golden tone to them. There are different forms of Junipers from low, medium-size to large, to tall and narrow upright types. The low type of Junipers can be used as great groundcover in the landscape and the large, upright and more narrow junipers works well for hedges, privacy, windbreaks and screens. Junipers as a whole will tolerate many soil types, but prefers well-draining soils and sunny spots in the landscape. Some varieties will produce small berries that will attract birds in the winter months.
