Not a cedar, this is a dense, moderately slow growing juniper that maintains an overall pyramidal form. A very tough plant, tolerates a wide range of soils and endures the extremes of drought, heat and cold. Most ornamental feature has to be the numerous silver blue berries that contrast nicely with the lighter green needles. Hardy to Zone 3b-9.
