|Botanical Pronunciation||ju-NIP-er-us chi-NEN-sis|
|Lore||This plant was so often planted in early 20th century Los Angeles landscapes. It is closely associated with bungalow gardens and craftsman homes.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Irregular, upright form that reaches 15 ft. tall and 10 ft. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||Named for its abundance 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. Perfect for Mediterranean themes and with the Santa Fe style gardens.|
