This is a slightly taller juniperina and has red/Magenta blossoms. This one has been slower growing than the other juniperinas, but that could be because it was planted a little further down the hill in Down Under Up Top. This was with the expectation that it would grow taller and thus a majority of the plant would be in full sun. We shall have to wait another year or two and see how well it performs and if not, take some cuttings and try it elsewhere.
Some sites have stated its size to be 4′ to 9′ and 10′ to 12′. That will be a problem if true.
