They're pretty much just plain old Juniperus chinensis. Perfectly suitable.

I have a commercial nursery, Owen's Nursery (they own several really big catalog companies), 30 miles north of me. I went in two years ago and purchased 2 dozen San Jose Junipers from them. All 2 or 3 year old starts. I think I still have around 18 of them. I use them to satisfy my need to be working with some tree constantly, LOL! Several of them are beginning to show some promise. They appear to be quite hardy and fairly forgiving.

Owen's usually has an entire field section of nothing but SJ Junipers for their annual catalog sales of "Indoor Bonsai" material.
