**In order as they appear:
~~~> Blue Star Dwarf Juniper - Juniperus squamata 'Blue Star'
The blue-green foliage of the Blue Star Juniper stands out in any kind of garden, but it's particularly valuable when used as a miniature garden tree or shrub. Its branches are very pronounced and gives the scene a majestic look - but in miniature.
The colorful Blue Star Juniper can be paired with other gray-greens, silvers, creams, pinks and light greens for a charming display. The branches grow out from the trunk in a star shape, and the wee growth is pointed too - it's a "superstar" for miniature gardening!
Growth: 3 to 6"/yr Cold Zones 4 to 9 or hardy to -30 to -20 Heat Zones 9 to 1
~~~> White Pygmy Cypress - Chamaecyparis pisifera 'White Pygmy'
The coloring is just lovely in the miniature garden - as the tips of the tiny foliage are a lovely cream color, turning into a beautiful gray-green color as you follow the branch towards the center of the shrub.
Shear it in late winter to keep it in a tight ball and to encourage the white tips. Full sun brings out the white tips also. A very fun cypress!
Creamy tips with rich grey-greens Fun globe shape Pretty coloring all year round
Growth rate less than 1"/yr Zones 5 to 8, Cold Hardy to -20F Heat Zones: 8 to 1
~~~> Top Point Atlantic Cedar - Chamaecyparis thyoides 'Top Point'
Lacy blue-green foliage on reddy-brown colored stems with an upright broad cone shape make this an excellent choice for the miniature garden. It really looks like a big tree in the landscape - but in miniature. A fellow MG, Laney in LA grows this plant with confidence in her climate.
In winter, the foliage blushes a lovely plum color It can tolerate drier soil once established
Upright broad in shape Growth rate is 2 to 5" per year
Hardy Zones 3 to 8, or -30F Heat Zones 8 to 1
