    Savin Juniper Overview

    This species is a spreading shrub; it will grow to about 3.5m in height and 3-4.5m wide in its native mountains. It will produce flaking reddish brown bark and deep green scale-like leaves. The berries produced are blue-black. Grow in full sun which is essential. Give it good drainage and fertile soil.
