Juniperus x pfitzeriana ‘Golden Joy'
Juniperus can be prostrate or erect, evergreen shrubs or trees with aromatic, scale-like or sharply pointed awl-shaped leaves, and small globose fruits. This genus has 53 species and occupies a huge ecological and geographical range across the northern hemisphere. Junipers are found in Europe, Africa, Asia, North America, Central America, W India, the Canary Islands, and from sub-Arctic tundra, in the north to semi-desert in the tropics, reaching the limits of most higher plants of many alpine mountains.
Juniperus x pfitzeriana ‘Golden Joy' is a new cultivar that offers improvements over other golden junipers. For one, its yellow is brighter than other available options, and it maintains the brilliant colour throughout the year. In addition, it is easy to grow and has a classic spreading and compact form. It grows more slowly so it will stay beautiful and maintain a manageable size for years. Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery,
