Genus Juniper is a large genus of fifty three species and occupies a huge ecological and geographical range across the Northern Hemisphere. Junipers can be prostrate or erect, evergreen shrubs or trees with aromatic, scale-like or sharply pointed awl-shaped leaves, and small berries.
Details Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery. The exquisite Metasequoia Glyptostroboides, a deciduous, slower-growing and hardier tree than its Sequoia cousin, develops a handsome, conical habit with horizontal branching and red-brown bark. Its feathery foliage is light green in spring and unusual peach bronze in fall. While metasequoia have the appearance of an evergreen, they shed their needles every fall. The branching of this unique, weeping cultivar provides visual appeal in the winter.
