|Juniperus chinensis 'Torulosa'
Botanical Name: Juniperus chinensis 'Torulosa'
A bright, light green scale-like needle.
A small round cone that is not showy.
Upright pyramidal form with very irregular branching that may ascend or be more horizontal.
Upwards of 15 to 20 feet tall when happy. Width is variable depending on branch structure.
Full sun for best growth. The more shade there is the more open the plant will be.
Description: This juniper is extremely popular in California, however, it is hardy enough for all but the most severe of our New England winters. It has green foliage, both juvenile and adult. ‘Torulosa’ has a basically upright habit of growth, but its extreme irregularity can lend it to almost any use in the landscape. By taking out the leaders, a plant wider than high can be produced. It can give a "Japanese effect" to large rock gardens, etc.
