Juniperus chinensis 'Blaauw' was introduced to Europe from Japan more than a century ago. The foliage of this cultivar has a bluish tinge when grown in the ground, but, when used in a bonsai pot, the leaves turn mid-green.

Location

An outdoor species, the Chinese Juniper can be placed in full sun  throughout the growing season. 

Temperature

In temperatures below -10°C move to a frost-free shed or greenhouse. During the winter, junipers can take on a brown or reddish hue when exposed to frost, this is nothing to worry about, they will turn green again in the spring. Exposure to frost temporarily turn the foliage yellow or brown.

Watering

Water regularly but sparingly, giving the plant more water in summer than in spring or autumn. In winter keep the compost just moist. This plant will not thrive in waterlogged soil. 

Pruning

When wiring be careful not to trap the foliage under the wire and make sure to check the wire after a year. 

Repotting

Check to see if your tree needs repotting every 2-4 years. 

Feeding

Feed during the growing season. Always read the instructions.
