Can't tell which are miniature or real!

Hedge is Juniperus chinensis. Possibly 'Kaizuka'

Juniper conifer is Juniperus conferta I think.

Little yellow conifer looks like Thujopsis dolobrata, although I wouldn't swear on that either.


RE: a few more from Ilha Formosa

The white variegated conifer could be Cryptomeria jap. ' Mejiro ' or ' Variegata' ( syn. ' Albospica'). I'm not sure, if there is a difference between both.


RE: a few more from Ilha Formosa

I really love the Araucaria cone! Thank you for sharing the pictures. :)
