Beautiful very showy coppery ochre winter coloration on the extremely congested upright blunt foliage of this gradually spreading, low growing selection with upright turned stem tips--very perky habit emphasized especially with the bright acid yellow new spring growth. Oddly, it is bright acid yellow in the spring and richly coppery bronze during the winter--it glows, but not in a very lime fashion. A very rarely found (yet very easily grown if in full sun) sport of "Andorra Juniper" shared long ago by J.C. Raulston. In our climate this uniquely hued gem grows slowly enough to be a successful rockery subject.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
