Chinese Juniper

Chinese Juniper by Buddy Lauer. (CBTC: February 2019)

This Chinese Juniper, on display at the Longwood Gardens, is on loan from the Kennett Collection. The image was cut from its unflattering white stipple background then replaced with a black one to enhance the impact and colors of this magnificent specimen. Training of this exotic tree began in 1963. When one considers that these trees live and are cultivated for more than 250-years, this one might be considered a youngster.
