I obtained this tree from Vito Megna a couple years ago. I’m not sure when it was collected. Ashe Juniper is also known as “Texas Cedar” to Texans, which also seems to have a bad rap when it comes to allergies.
There is a reference to Ashe Juniper in the book Schoech, Wayne, and Masahiko Kimura. Junipers: Growing & Styling Juniper Bonsai. Passumpsic, VT: Stone Lantern Pub., 2007. 5-6. Print. They claim to have no experience with it but have heard of people in Texas growing it. Hopefully this one can be a representative and symbol of Texas bonsai someday after some love and hard work.
