Juniperus virginiana ‘Corcorcor’
Juniperus virginiana ‘Corcorcor’, or Emerald Sentinel™ eastern red cedar, is a northeastern native conifer found in areas ranging from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Beloved by visitors for its vibrant evergreen branches, this plant provides fragrant foliage and visual interest in all seasons. The cultivar ‘Corcorcor’, better known by the trade name Emerald Sentinel™, was chosen for the High Line because of its cobalt blue cones, often referred to as berries. These berries provide a valuable food source for local birds throughout the winter.
Juniperus virginiana ‘Corcorcor’, can be found on the High Line between West 21st and West 24th Streets, and near West 30th Street.
