Prostrata is a low-growing cultivar of single seed juniper, a variable, evergreen shrub native to the Himalayas and mountains of central Asia. It features light green foliage which develops attractive purple tones in winter. The ends of its short, upright branches droop at the tips, creating an interesting texture. Its foliage is contrasted with appealing, rust-colored exfoliating bark. Single seed juniper should be grown in full sun, and is adaptable to a range of soil conditions, provided they are well-drained. The low profile of Prostrata makes it an excellent choice for groundcover or rock gardens. This variety is also popular for use as a bonsai specimen.
