Juniperus procumbens is a species of shrub in the cypress family Cupressaceae, native to Japan. The status of this low-growing evergreen conifer as a wild plant is disputed. Some authorities treat it as endemic to high mountains on Kyūshū and a few other islands off southern Japan, while others consider it native to the coasts of southern Japan (north to Chiba Prefecture) and also the southern and western coasts of Korea. It is closely related to the Chinese juniper, Juniperus chinensis, and is sometimes treated as a variety of it, as J. chinensis var. procumbens.

It is a prostrate shrub, usually growing 7.9-11.8 inches tall, occasionally 20 inches; while it does not get very tall it can get quite wide, 6.6-13.1 feet across or more, with long prostrate branches. The branches tend to intertwine and form a dense mat. The leaves are arranged in decussate whorls of three; all the leaves are juvenile form, needle-like with two white stomatal bands on the inner face. It is dioecious with separate male and female plants. The cones are berry-like, globose, dark blackish-brown with a pale blue-white waxy bloom, and contain two or three seeds (rarely one); they are mature in about 18 months. The male cones shed their pollen in early spring. It is dioecious, producing cones of only one sex on each plant.
