Japanese Shimpaku. This is the type of Juniper that the Japanese use for their Bonsai. It has mature foliage, which means it has the fatty, soft tipped type rather than the needle type. It has exfoliating bark which means it does slough off as do older trees. Slow Growing, but oh so beautiful. Shimpaku means "juniper" in Japanese.
