The Brodie Eastern Red Cedar (often referred to as Brodie Juniper) is one of the most popular cultivars of Juniperus virginiana because of its narrow pyramidal growth habit. Traditionally Eastern Red Cedar (parent plant of the Brodie Juniper) have not has as much popularity in smaller landscapes due to their mature width of 25’. Brodie Junipers will reach a mature width of 12’ which gives them more versatility in smaller landscapes and they are often used as privacy screens in narrower landscapes. Brodie Junipers have naturally dense canopies with dark green foliage that have a very smooth feel which differs from it’s parent needle like foliage. Another plus to the Brodie Juniper is the uniformity of their canopies since they are all taken from cuttings; its parent, the Eastern Red Cedar, has been known to have a lot of variance in the shape and size of their canopies. Brodie Junipers have proven to be extremely drought tolerant, disease resistant and able to handle a wide variety of soil conditions. In late fall they will produce an abundance of dark blue berries.
