Project Description Rocky Mountain Juniper (Juniperus scopulorum) is a Juniper species native to North America and can be found from Washington state to North Dakota and as far south as Sonora, Mexico.  It typically grows at elevations ranging from 1500 to 9000 feet (500-2800 meters).  In the past, Plateau Indian tribes would use Rocky Mountain Juniper to make a cough and fever remedy by boiling an infusion from the foliage and bark. The Rocky Mountain Juniper featured in this edition of Bonsai-U was collected in Wyoming by Dan and Steve of Backcountry Bonsai at an elevation of approximately 6000 feet.  It was originally planted in a wooden box in pure pumice and allowed to grow for 2 seasons before initially being styled in December of 2017.  Following that first styling, it was left for another growing season before being repotted into its current Japanese Tokoname container.  The styling in this episode of Bonsai-U took place in Fall 2019 Project Details: Rocky Mountain Juniper Appx.
