Eastern Juniper

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Juniperus virginiana (Eastern Redcedar, Red Cedar, Eastern Juniper, Red Juniper, Pencil Cedar) is a species of juniper native to eastern North America, from southeastern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, east of the Great Plains. Further west, it is replaced by the related Juniperus scopulorum (Rocky Mountain Juniper), and to the southwest, by Juniperus ashei (Ashe Juniper). The Lakota Native American name is Chansha, “redwood” or Hante’. In its native range, it is commonly called “cedar” or “red cedar", names rejected by the American Joint Committee on Horticultural Nomenclature as it is a juniper, not a true cedar
