Juniperus davurica can be identified as a dwarf, evergreen coniferous plant that can grow over a large area. Due to its attractive appearance, the plant fits perfectly into any landscape, and its leaves retain their bright color in the warm season and winter. The first mention of the plant dates back to 1789 when the German encyclopedist Peter-Simon Pallas described it in his book called "Flora Rossica."
Juniperus davurica grows to the ground and grows up to 6 in (15 cm) tall. The needles have a bluish-green color, and a large part of the shoots is creamy-white. Annual growth is about 4 in (10 cm) wide, so the plant is often used as a ground cover.
The fruits are small, single, and spherical in shape with a dark brown color and a blue coating. The seeds of the plant have an ovoid shape, there are 2 to 4 seeds in one fruit, and quite often, they make their way out of the fruit. Juniperus davurica grows slowly, and if the conditions are good, it can live up to 20 years.
