Junipers can appear in different shapes and sizes. Some of them grow in columnar or low spreading shrubs that have long trailing branches and some appear like tall trees that are from 20 to 40 m tall. The plant is evergreen and has scale like or needle-like leaves. They can be dioecious or monoecious.
There are numerous junipers with two types of leaves: there are twigs of older trees that have leaves which resemble needles and are from 5 to 25 mm long as well as seedlings; the leaves seen on the mature plants are usually tiny, from 2 to 4 mm. They resemble scales and are overlapping. In case of juvenile foliage on mature plants, this can be mostly seen on shaded shoots and the adult foliage is in full sunlight. The leaves present on the fast-growing ‘whip’ shoots are usually intermediate and are between adult and juvenile.
