Cupressaceae -- Cypress family

    L. P. Wilhite

    Southern redcedar (Juniperus silicicola), also called redcedar,  coast juniper, sand-cedar, and eastern redcedar, has not been well  studied. Until more work is done, the fragmentary information available  should be supplemented, though cautiously, with information in the  literature about eastern redcedar (J. virginiana). The two species  are similar in many respects. Generally, eastern redcedar has ascending or  horizontal branches, male cones 3 to 4 mm (0.12 to 0. 16 in) long, and  female cones 5 to 6 mm (0.20 to 0.24 in) long containing one to four  seeds. In contrast southern redcedar generally has more slender, pendulous  branches, male cones 5 to 6 mm (0.20 to 0.24 in) long, and female cones 3  to 4 mm (0.12 to 0.16 in) long containing only one or two seeds (5,11).
