(Jatropha)

Jatropha comprises approximately 175 shrubs, trees, and herbaceous perennials, most native to tropical South America. They typically have small, brightly colored flowers, evergreen foliage, and succulent, latex producing stems.

Handsome leaves, often with finger-like lobes, are arranged alternately on the stem. Red, yellow, purple, or white flowers occur singly or in flat-topped clusters near or at the ends of branches. Plants bear both male and female flowers. The fruit is a capsule,...

(Peregrina)

Bearing showy clusters of starry bright red or pink flowers through much of the year, this broadleaf evergreen from Cuba and the West Indies is a popular greenhouse and patio plant. Its multiple stems eventually form a large shrub or small tree. The large shiny dark green leaves are variable in shape but usually three-lobed. They are bronze-tinged when young. Small inconspicuous purplish-green fruits are sometimes produced. Look for 'Compacta,' a slow-growing, prolifically flowering selection.

(Ashe's Juniper)

An evergreen conifer with a low-branching trunk and a picturesque, rounded, open crown, this large shrub or small tree is native to a narrow range of the south-central United States and northern Mexico.

The aromatic, dark green, scale-like foliage of Ashe's juniper is borne on spreading, gray-brown branches that become shaggy-barked with age. The fragrant, decay-resistant wood was traditionally used for fence posts and cedarwood oil. Female plants bear large quantities of large, dark blue, fleshy...

(Chinese Juniper)

Chinese juniper is a variable evergreen tree or shrub native to China and Japan. The needle-like or scale-like leaves are green to blue-green and usually hold their color in winter. The small, berry-like fruit (on female plants) ripens from whitish blue to dark brown. Chinese juniper prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Many of its cultivars are common in gardens, where they are used for screening, windbreaks and hedging.

(Ames Juniper, Chinese Juniper)

Super tough yet lush and beautiful, 'Ames' is valued as evergreen hedge material with marked tolerance of drying winds. Its parent is a highly variable evergreen shrub native to much of China where it can reach tree like proportions. The extreme variability of Juniperus chinensis has resulted in many cultivars featuring different growth habits, sizes and colors. Thick scaled leaves of 'Ames' are green, but may take on bronze tones in winter. They are well packed onto upright cone-shaped...

(Armstrong's Chinese Juniper, Chinese Juniper)

The beautiful soft foliage and spreading form of 'Armstrongii' make it an attractive evergreen shrub for the landscape. It dwarf and has prickly juvenile foliage that becomes soft and scaled as it matures. The true identity of this cultivar is under scrutiny. Some maintain it is a Juniperus chinensis cultivar, while others believe it is a pfitzer juniper, which is a Juniperus sabina and Juniperus chinensis cross.

Pfitzer junipers are useful plants with a solid evergreen...

(Chinese Juniper, Golden Chinese Juniper)

Many believe this is the most beautiful of all golden columnar junipers because its foliage is equally bright in summer and winter. Asian in origin, this cultivar was discovered as a branch sport in around 1855 at Maurice Young's nursery, Milford, Godalming, Surrey, England. It has a tall, pyramidal form and prickly scale-like leaves that become stiffer when mature. The sport arose from a male plant, so this is not a berry producing selection.

Chinese juniper prefers full sun and grows in any...

(Blue Point Juniper, Chinese Juniper)

(Casino Gold Juniper, Chinese Juniper)

Juniper ‘Casino Gold’ forms an upright, spreading fountain of vivid, golden-green foliage, which shines like a ray of sunlight amid the dull shades of the winter garden. Its bright, evergreen color makes this shrub a powerful design tool for enlivening the landscape year-round. ‘Casino Gold’ is derived from Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinensis), a highly variable species found throughout most of China, whose diversity of form has led to the creation of numerous cultivars of different shapes,...
