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.
