New Zealand (Zone 1) wrote:

This Chinese Juniper has a refined pyramidal form, and is unusually variegated with creamy white and deep green foliage, making it perfect as an accent tree or as a pruned shrub. The flowers are insignificant, but it produces powder blue berries from late spring right through to late winter. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.
