These cultivars are narrow columnar trees that may approach 15 to 20 feet (5-6 m.) in height with a 3 to 12 foot (1-4 m.) spread.
This slow-growing plant takes up to 50 years to reach maturity, which means it can be used in a large container for many years before it must go in ground.
The foliage is bluish green, scale-like, and aromatic when crushed. Like most junipers, it develops tiny rounded, bluish gray cones that resemble berries. These can take up to two years to fully mature. Even the bark is attractive. It is reddish brown and has an interesting shredding appearance.
The plant is tolerant of both full and partial sun locations. Soil may be any pH, clay, sand, loam, or even chalky. The biggest requirement is a well-draining location, but the plant also does poorly in high humidity.
