tularosa juniper

Could someone please help identify this for me? I've checked my old plant lists and can't find it. A friend has this planned for her new garden.

Well, with a quick search, I could not find any links.

However, this is a cool tree that has the branches that twist and turn in all different directions. It is very unusual and striking when placed well in a landscape plan.
Although I am not certain of the spelling, I usually refer to it as a Torolusa.

Hope this is helpful...

RE: tularosa juniper

Thanks so much! I went on the internet and got some more info. Appreciate your answer.

A warning about this plant in your climate. It gets HUGE!!! I've rarely seen one planted in an appropriate location within the confines of a typical home landscape.

Don't believe the nursery information, but do some driving around on your own. Hilton Head is a good example of a city that went Torulosa crazy before they realised it was NOT a plant that was suitable for small courtyards, or mall strips.

Many thanks for the warning. This tree was listed on the plans for a friend's garden in Tybee. It was drawn up by a landscape architect. I'll pass the warning on to my friend and will check out those trees next time I'm in Hilton head!
