Junipers are wonderfully easy to grow. Many sizes and shapes are available to fit any landscape need. Most are hardy, durable, and require little maintenance. Evergreen foliage contrasts strikingly with other juniper, redtwig dogwood, and barberry. Tolerates any well-drained soil type.

Redtwig Dogwood

This terrific year-round plant's most outstanding feature is its bright red winter stems. Spring flowers attract butterflies, and handsome summer foliage and vibrant red-orange fall color add interest in the landscape. Combine with variegated holly, astilbe and golden forest grass for a nice blend of color, texture and form.
