my other (token) conifer

At the moment they only other conifer (other than the wollemi pine),is a very low growing juniper. It was planted long ago, vaguely I remember it having a name like carpet juniper, and it looks a little like a Juniperus squamata but thats supposed to be fast growing and this one is definitely not that!

I did have two other conifers, pencil pines, but they were growing so fast and tall I had to move them well away from the house. They were definitely unsuited to my restricted space. Now I just have to dream of getting a more slow growing King Billy, Celery top or Huan Pine to replace them.
