California Juniper

juniper bush in the Mojave Desert, Antelope Valley
The California juniper (Juniperus californica) here is probably a male, whereas the ones which have berries are female. The bluish-green berries or cones will mature the first, second or third years and is food for birds and rodents. Coyotes will eat them but they seem to pass through without being digested. As you look around, will see very few small junipers. The seeds in the cones are very difficult to germinate. When the wood is cut, a distinctive cedar smell is present.
