Has the nomenclature changed regarding common juniper in eastern North America? I thought the arborescent form in eastern NA was Juniperus communis var. communis, while the spreading form was var. depressa; all the older texts I have separate the two distinctly. Are both now included in depressa?
Eflora describes 3 subspecies; depressa is the wide ranging subspecies in eastern North America
