'Tolleson's Blue Weeping'  - click image
Atlanta Botanical Garden. Summer 2003. One of the finest of all weeping conifers which together with juniper toughness makes it an asset. Of course,
this species is not happy in all the hot, humid climates or very cold ones so it has limits. I'd like to see people do with this cultivar what they are doing
with weeping blue atlas cedars - mass plantings with lots of training for a blue waterfall look. LCH.

Juniperus scopulorum 'Tolleson's Blue Weeping' ('Tollescen's Blue Weeping')
ht: 20 ft. tall x 10-15 ft. wide. Most plants seen are about 10 ft. tall x 5-8 ft. wide but this varies widely

Juniperus scopulorum 'Tolleson's Green Weeping' ('Tollscen's Green Weeping')
ha: pendulous, usually sparse with numerous filiform branchlets
lc: gray-green to light green. Some plants in California are reported as "dark green" perhaps because
lc: of climate or very good nursery fertilization.
id: Dirr says he thinks this is a rename of older 'Pendula'. However there is no evidence to tie the
id: two names and clones together. Weeping and filiform mutants are common in this species and
id: also J. virginiana. They occur regularly in populations so they are likely a parallel mutation but not
