Gardeners' Notes:

I planted a hillside area in these five years ago, and they are doing well--about 3 feet across and 2.5 ft high despite the area being gradually more and more shaded with trees. There is not as much golden color in summer now though. The supplier did say that it needed sun.

Neutral conifers On Mar 7, 2006, conifers from Rock Island, IL (Zone 5b) wrote:

All Junipers can be propagated via cuttings and is the most common means of propagation. Some are grafted however as a few species can be difficult propagate on their own roots (cuttings). Juniperus scopulorum is one species difficult to root from cuttings therefore it is commonly grafted. The most common understocks for grafting Junipers are (1) Juniperus scopulorum (Rocky Mountain Juniper) and (2) Juniperus 'Heitzii'. A good media mix for rooting Junipers is 4 parts perlite to 1 part peat moss with bottom heat (68-72 F) and mist your cuttings at least four times daily. This is also a good mix for most all conifer cuttings.
