Description: This plant was introduced from Holland not too many years ago. It is quite slow growing for a juniper, so slow that it could be almost classified as a dwarf. John Mitch says a 10 year old plant will be 23 inches across and about 18 inches high. Unlike most junipers, it will stay tight and full without shearing. Its color is bright blue, and indeed it is one of the brightest blues of any conifer Iíve ever seen - very attractive and eye catching.
