Comments: This is a slow-growing juniper with a columnar form and makes an excellent accent plant in the garden. It produces attractive silvery-gray foliage and attractive, silvery-colored fruit in late autumn and winter. Like all junipers this one is tolerant of a wide range of soils provided soils are well drained and plants are growing in full sunlight
