Juniperus communis

Common name: Common Juniper

Native plant

A sprawling evergreen shrub that grows best on sandy, well-drained soil. Once this plant is established, it is very hardy and adaptable to most conditions. Has a habit of spreading out low over the ground and forming large mats about 5’ deep. Spiny to the touch, Juniperus communis makes great cover for critters in open, dry areas.
