    This Japgarden Juniper is commonly sold at Conventional nurseries for groundcover use in the Midwest, the Mid-Atlantic, the Northeast, and the upper South of the USA. Its foliage is bright or grayish green and all the needles are awl-shaped in threes, and the foliage is very spiny and prickly. It is nice to look at, but don't touch. It does best in full sun and an open siting. It does not seem to get the juniper blight that damages or kills some groundcover junipers.
