Use the University of Minnesota Plant Information site and search for your plant (juniperus communis):
https://plantinfo.umn.edu/

You will find several nurseries that carry common juniper, including some in Minnesota.

You may need to look online. I have no way of telling you where you might find what you are looking for.

You might also ask one of your local nurseries if they would order them for you. You might have to take 5 if that is their minimum.
