(Chinese Juniper, Twisted Juniper)

Chinese juniper is a variable evergreen tree or shrub native to China and Japan. Its cultivar 'Torulosa' -- popularly known as Hollywood juniper -- is a broad, upright shrub with an irregular, spiralling habit that lends it a picturesque, windswept appearance. Its bright green, scale-like foliage and small, blue, berry-like fruit are also ornamental. 'Torulosa' prefers sun and well-drained soil. Its unique form makes it a poor choice for hedges, but an excellent one as a feature plant.
