#397 They called me Juniperus chinensis, also known as Juniperus thunbergii, Juniperus shepherdii, Juniperus sheppardii, Juniperus gaussenii, Juniperus chinensis var. gaussenii, and Juniperus jacobii. I pay homage to the male botanists Carl Peter Thunberg, George John Shepherd, Sheppard (I couldn’t find his records), Henri Marcel Gaussen, and Jacob (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1767.
