CARE

Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
HISTORY
Lore Juniper's foliage and wood contain rich volatile oils that make these plants resistant to decay and nearly drought proof. Juniper scopulorum, or Western Redcedar is prized for its reddish-brown and aromatic heartwood that is commonly used for cedar chests and closets because it repels insects. The wood is also used for interior finish, fence posts, poles and pencils.
