|Botanical Pronunciation||ju-NIP-er-us sa-BI-na tam-ar-iss-sif-FOH-lee-a|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate grower to 18 to 30 in. tall, spreading to 10 ft.|
|Design Ideas||This blue-tinted Juniper spreads but is not ground hugging. Instead, it makes graceful wide mounds that are particularly lovely as individual specimens in fields of gravel or bark. A good choice for warm-winter regions, where it fits nicely into settings that are both tropical and Asian in appearance. Adds accent to a mass of flatter Juniper used for erosion control on banks and slopes. Particularly lovely in raised or seatwall planters.|
