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.
