This is one tree of three San Jose Junipers that I discovered at a local nursery. These type of trees are the easiest to care for of all my trees and there is about a 90% success rate for cuttings. I was able to talk them down to $13 each which is unreal for trunks of this size. I like to browse around the back areas of nursery's for the older scrub stuff and sometimes it pays off. I've never paid the normal full price for a tree/bush. These photos are the method I have found works best for me and does not mean others do something different.
