Juniperus sabina 'Tamarisifolia'. TAM. Central and S. Europe, W. Russia
CUPRESSACEAE (Cypress family)
Juniperus communis cultivar. COMMON JUNIPER. Circumboreal.
This widely planted low and spreading groundcover covers a large area between the lawn south of Serra St. and the entrance to the Quad at Palm Drive, threading together the Thuja orientalis at each side of the entry stairs. The basic landscape pattern of this area that we see today is present on Dirk Schroder's 1968 Quad Planting Map, Maps and Records, ML0148.
Common juniper can be seen in the cement planters near the entrance of the east entrance of Green Library.
