I was wondering if anyone by chance knew what the name of a certain shrub was that i found. It was used in landscaping at one of our local McDonalds and I would like to know so i could possible get some. It looks like those soft cedar type bushes about 3 ft high and has tiny blueberries on it. Thanks in advance!

Susan, take a couple of photos of the shrub.
Break a small snipit off of a branch.
Go to a good garden center and get the "expert" there to help you.
McD might frown on the other action. LOL

I'll take the picture in the day time;
sneak back at nite and discreetly get the sample.
You'll never know it.

More than likely it is a juniper.
There are a number of varieties available at garden centers.
Some grow upright, some round shapes and some spread horizontally.
The one pictured here is the "Blue Star" juniper.

Squeeze the 'berry' or a fresh sprig and if it smells like Gin, it is Juniper of some type...

Salmoneye, Mmmmm....Gin....

From what I have heard in the past, the Juniper berry has medicinal value and Native Americans new this. Darn, now I have this urge to check the internet and find out. Had other things to do.
