|Botanical Pronunciation||ju-NIP-er-us chi-NEN-sis|
|Average Size at Maturity||Fast growing; reaches 15 ft. tall, 10 ft. wide, in natural form.|
|Bloom Time||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||Named for its popularity in Los Angeles gardens, this twisted upright beauty is very cold hardy. Its unique form and deep green color is striking against peach or white stucco walls. Use at entries and to mark gateways, and it is very attractive in conjunction with wrought iron gates. Grow on the corners of your house or between windows. It can be lined up in an informal hedge, but this spoils its drama as a single specimen and will not have the manicured appearance of a true hedge. Perfect for Mediterranean, Santa Fe, and Asian inspired gardens.|
