Juniperus conferta (shore juniper) is a species of juniper, native to Japan, where it grows on sand dunes. Conferta is derived from Latin. "Con" meaning together and "ferta" meaning strong. It forms a wonderful cover and it has a fresh green colour which is reminiscent of lawn. The foliage is very prickly, a common characteristic of many junipers. Most are pretty tolerant with soils, but they dislike a wet environment. Many will take quite alkaline conditions too.
It is also often grown as bonsai.
