I’m Jasper the Juniper and native to Japan. I'm a dwarfed slow-growing Juniper variety with spiny-pointed blue-green to gray-green needles. Junipers have the distinction of being the most popular common bonsai right now for our bushy compact look and natural droop. I do best in a full-sun location.
Water me well by placing my pot in a bowl of water up to the rim for 20 minutes, about once every 5-7 days, or whenever my pot feels very light. I stay green all year, so you can enjoy my color even on the coldest days.
Remember, I am an outdoor plant. I only like to be indoors for a special occassion, but then go back outside. In winter, put me in a protected, cool spot where I can go dormant and feel rested come springtime. I do fine in temps down to the single digits. Read more winterizing care tips online.
The Juniper tree grows all over the Northern hemisphere. Evergreen, it grows berry-like cones (called Juniper berries) that are used in all sorts of rituals. Most uses of Juniper revolve around taking someone into your protection ceremonies and other similar welcomes and fresh starts. More popularly, Juniper berries are used to flavor gin.
