The most widespread native conifer in eastern North America, Juniperus virginiana (Eastern Red Cedar) is a densely columnar to broadly pyramidal evergreen conifer forming a splendid exclamation point in the landscape. Fragrant, the scale-like foliage can be coarse or fine-cut and varies in color from gray-green to blue-green to light- or dark-green. Many wildlife species feast on the juicy juniper berries during the winter, especially the cedar waxwings, bobwhite quail, ruffed grouse, sharp-tailed grouse, ring-necked pheasant, wild turkeys, rabbits, foxes, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and coyotes. The pinkish to reddish heartwood is aromatic, very light, durable, and avoided by moths, making it a favorite for cedar closets and cedar chests. Slow-growing and long-lived, Eastern Red Cedar is ideal for providing year round structure. Tough, heat, drought, cold tolerant, it can prosper where other conifers struggle. It is particularly useful for very dry, sunny sites where it makes a wonderful specimen plant. Perfect for a large screen.
