Gold Cone Juniper
(Juniperis communis ‘Gold Cone’)

This evergreen conifer (cone- bearer) forms a tight spire which reaches to 8’-10’ tall, and remains a mere 18”-20” across. When the new growth emerges in the spring it is a lovely bright yellow green – a color which settles into a soft green as summer wears on.
