Description

A graceful upright small conifer in the Juniperaceae family that is prized for its dramatic blue-green foilage.  Its dense branching habit works well as a privacy screen , boarder, or divider.  Planted en masse, it helps with erosion control.  It effectively blocks both hot and cold winds when planted in a tight row. It also works as a single specimen where its fountain shape is best seen.  It is a low maintenance plant  suited to shearing into formal shapes and is seen in Asian or contemporary gardens.
