Virginia Creeper
Common Juniper

Virginia Creeper is a fast-growing, climbing vine. Its root-like tendrils attach themselves to any non-smooth surface, even brick, but will also grow as a ground cover.

Virginia Creeper makes a beautiful ornamental plant for your garden; its attractive foliage turns from green to deep red in the fall. Birds will love its red berries.

Common Juniper is a small, coniferous shrub with scale-like needles upon maturity. Typically growing to 3 or 4 feet in height, this variety will not spread like Creeping Juniper.

This hardy evergreen is commonly used by landscapers to provide texture and ground cover beneath larger trees or in beds around the foundations of buildings.

It is wide spreading and produces small, berry-like cones that is a great food source for wildlife. These cones grow in green and change to glaucous to black as they ripen.

The Common Juniper has even been used to make the popular alcoholic beverage, gin.
