Straggly when young. Unlike the columnar-upright forms, which don't last long in New England, this is long-lived here. The form and color make it stand out in the landscape, so placement needs careful planning.

This is a male form.

Hi everyone;
I live in zone 8a or b on the southeastern coast of N.C. and purchased a 4ft. Green Weeping Tolleson Juniper last spring from the local nursery that sale a few Monrovia products; it has managed to do well in the clay soil here without any amendments to the soil.
During this past summer it tolerated the extreme heat and drought we experienced. During the fall I gave it plenty of water and mulch to see it through our mild winter. After the harsh summer the color of the foliage was sea green then during our mild fall and winter the Tolleson changed to a deep bluish green hue while it continued to grow little tinny blue/green egg corns over the foliage which had become too top heavy. The tree has only two thick branches on either side at the top of the trunk, one side of the tree has longer and unevenly more foliage. I had planed to trim the foliage back which at the time hovered one foot from the ground, but then decided to loosely stake one of the branches, pulling the plant from leaning to one side and train a few of the smaller branches to spread outward to distribute the top weight of the trunk. I do not believe in staking unless absolutely necessary and temporarily. I will fertilize in early spring in a week or two. Then observe how well it responds to all the nurturing.
As soon as I purchase a reliable digital camera I will upload.
