This 1946 introduction from Hill Nursery in Illinois (originally named J. v. 'Cupressifolia') has brilliant green foliage, a perfect columnar shape to 2' wide x 10' tall in ten years. In winter, the abundant bright blue berries contrast nicely with the foliage...this is about as good a conifer gets...why is it little known?
