Creeping Juniper ~ Juniperus horizontalis

Creeping Juniper is native to Alaska, Canada, the northern U.S and can be typically found growing in rocky or sandy soils including rock outcroppings, stony slopes, coastal cliffs, prairies, sand dunes, and stream banks. You can find Creeping juniper all in front of the smaller building next to Innovation Academy, with various other common nursery or landscaping plants. It's an excellent ground cover and really sticks out to me because of the dark blue berries it can grow. I never noticed berries on them before taking these pictures, and it's good to know the birds like them! Also, the branches can be used to build nests.
