Other Features:

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.
