Junipers would have to rank as the toughest evergreen landscape plants in the world. They will grow in any temperate or subtropical region North of the equator, and also in sub-equatorial Africa.

The Old Gold Juniper has a wide spreading, variable form, and grows about 3 feet high, by 4 feet wide. It has scale-like bronze/gold foliage, on branches that emerge at a 45 degree angle. The young branches show a slight weeping tendency. The bark of junipers is thin, gray-brown and lightly furrowed. It is a slow grower. Junipers are known to be extremely hardy in all regions of the US.
