The Chinese Juniper Itoigawa has very fine, cord like, mid green foliage. Its gnarled and twisted trunks and branches lend themselves to dramatic driftwood effects. They are excellent subjects for bonsai shaped in the contemporary sculptural style. Young branches can also be shaped using wire. They are easy to keep outdoor evergreens, making them a popular choice.

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.

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 3 or 4 years. 

Feeding

Feed during the growing season. Always read the instructions.

Please Note: The tree in the picture is the one we will send. Measurements given are approximate not exact and are taken from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree. Due to their nature trees grow and whilst in our care may need pruning, this means the tree that you receive may differ slightly in size to that given in the description. The appearance of the tree may vary depending on the season.
