Gwyn’s Juniper

On the way back from HBRG‘s autumn meeting today, I stopped to look at Gwyn’s upright juniper at Strollamus which is easy to spot from the road now that the leaves have fallen from most nearby trees.

Juniperus communis ssp, communis

Juniperus communis ssp. communis

It may not be a proper tree, but it is certainly not prostrate and the leaves are patent and acuminate – characteristics of Juniperus communis ssp. communis.
