Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana), packet of 20 seeds
Family: Cypress (Cupressaceae)
Hardy to Zones 2 to 9
(Juniper, Red Cedar, Pencil Cedar) Evergreen bush to small tree, growing as tall as 60 feet if kept unchecked and given ideal growing conditions. Native to eastern North America. One of the first trees to repopulate burned or abused land, this is a handsome earth healer that produces long-lasting, aromatic wood, handshake-friendly leaves that are burned for offerings, and scads of berries (cones). Traditional usage (TWM, Native American) urinary antiseptic, a low-dose botanical. Tree is both drought tolerant and cold tolerant and is an excellent choice for shelterbelts. Sow anytime and be very patient, as this is a multicycle germinator. Sow in gallon pots and keep moist, cool and in the shade. Fall planting with overwintering under snow is not a problem and will spur germination come spring.
