Abstract: A prostrate, creeping, freely rooting form of the Phoenician juniper, a species known for its rather limited variability, was found in SW Portugal. The form has a restricted distribution, and differs from the more common wind shaped forms (individuals) of the species by its more prostrate habit and its capability of freely sending adventitious roots to further establish itself in this summer-dry region. It may be valuable in soil-conservation projects and its ornamental merit may also be explored.
