I purchased this wonderful Grayish-Blue Juniper from Lowe's late winter 2008, it was pruned into a "poodle" and priced for half priced at $39.00. Here are a few pictures taken as it fill in after the 'poodle' cut, pics taken thru spring to early winter 2008.

Planted in fall of 2004 and it continues to do very well. It is slow growing but retains much of its colour through the winter. It has a definite blue-green cast to it and the new growth is a paler blue green. It is a bit spikey to handle.
