About Juniper Procumbens Nana

The Dwarf Juniper Procumbens Nana is a compact low-growing ground cover with bluish-grey foliage that will remain evergreen even in the harshest winter conditions. The slow growth and short needle foliage provide a soft appearance in the landscape, maturing to an average size of 6 inches to 1 foot tall and spreading between 4 – 6 feet. In the winter, the foliage may take on a purple hue.

Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper ‘Nana’ is one of the most popular bonsai trees due to the ease of training and pruning. They are also commonly used in rock and Asian-inspired gardens as well as in containers on patios. Also, this plant is often selected for bonsai growing and small topiaries. If space permits the spreading nature of this groundcover juniper, it will take on a mounding shape or may even begin to grow over obstacles such as low walls or small rocks.

How do you care for Juniper Procumbens Nana?

This plant requires full sun and free space to grow as it pleases. It is tolerant of a variety of soil types and grows where most others dare not. It is resilient in salty, coastal regions, urban pollution and in a variety of soil conditions including sandy, loamy and nutrient lacking. Additionally, it is deer, drought and erosion resistant.

Juniper procumbens Nana have minimal watering requirements and to an extent are similar to most succulents in the fact that less water is better. Mature plants may reach a point where watering may not be necessary at all unless growing in exceptionally arid conditions.

Procumbens Nana Juniper is hardy in USDA zones 4a-9b. 

Nana Juniper Pruning

Try not to remove all growing tips simultaneously when pruning, as the leaves may turn brown and the whole plant may decline. Instead, trim dense foliage areas with small, sharp pruning shears.

Spacing Your Green Mound Nana Juniper

For a seamless planting, space your Green Mound Nana Juniper 2-3 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 5+ feet apart.

    What are you selling? ‘Green Mound’ belongs to J.pingii var. wilsonii Prostrata Group and ‘Nana’ is a J. procumbens. They are different clones from different species. Confused.

    Planted smack dab in the middle of the Texas June heatwave (it’s really historically nothing unusual), many neighbor experts predicted certain doom. But the junipers seem to have fed off the criticism and are, so far, still green.

    Bought 12 in all, all plants arrived healthy.

    Love this shrub, trying it out as a bonsai tree.

      Thanks for the review! We think it would make a great bonsai plant as well. Good luck!

    5/6 came lovely and green. One is darker green and will hopefully regain color. Plantsbymail is excellent and is the best site I’ve seen for plants by mail. Visually these junipers are lovely. I put two in a planter box for decoration on my pool wall. Just perfect.
