Savin Juniper

( Juniperus sabina )

Available individually or as part of XfrogPlants Europe 3

The Savin Juniper (also called simply Sabine) is a Juniper species that grows preferably on steep and rocky mountainsides, where it colonizes terrain. For this reason it is also planted by man along sides of mountain roads, to contrast landslides. The leaves are of intense green color and have an acrid smell, due to the toxic substances that they contain (the plant is poisonous). Like the other Junipers, it can promote bio groups (group of differently aged plants where the older plant is surrounded by younger ones).
