Learn how to take care of your Juniper Bonsai tree. For more info, see:
The juniper bonsai is a genus of about 50 – 70 species within the cypress family. They are evergreen coniferous trees or shrubs, which are very popular for bonsai purposes.
Juniper Bonsai trees sold at large stores, including Walmart and Home Depot, are often Japanese Garden Junipers, also called Green Mound Junipers (Juniperus procumbens nana). Other popular species are the Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinensis), the Japanese Shimpaku (Juniperus sargentii), the Japanese needle juniper (Juniperus rigida), two central European species: the savin (Juniperus sabina) and the common juniper (Juniperus communis), and three American species: the California Juniper (Juniperus californica), the Rocky mountain Juniper (Juniperus scopulorum) and the Sierra Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis). All these species have very similar care guidelines.
