Thiessen Saskatoon
Creeping Juniper

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. They are one of the most productive saskatoons. Their fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is most popular with u-pick operations for its taller tree-like shape and much larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards because it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Creeping Juniper is a native coniferous shrub. This hardy evergreen is very commonly used by landscapers to provide texture and ground cover beneath larger trees.

Creeping Juniper typically stays under 18 inches in height and, while it will spread, the rate is very manageable.
