We love this unusual cultivar of J. squamata (although some folks say J. chinensis), so you say squamata and I'll say squamato (can you tell I'm getting bored!) J. 'Blue Alps' makes a really cool upright, irregular column of glossy blue foliage. We have not seen the dieback that is present in some J. squamata cultivars... great as a screen or used as a specimen in the landscape.
