I shall be very glad if anyone can tell me the name of this species.

Sorry photos fail to upload. Need more advise how to do it.



A juniper or a false cypress?

(Thank you very much Shannon. Your method works.)

Its a absolute mission I had to get advice over the phone from a good friend...
The secret is when you are in the "host image" icon and you have found the image you wish to post and you are at the COPY stage, instead of using the copy button (which doesn't work) you have to manually copy and paste it onto your page.

Hope this helps.

Got another problem.
When I try to post another photos, the photo when first posted appears instead of the new one.
Kindly advise.

Thanks

looks like juniper to me. It could be a form of upright Chinese Juniper.

Juniper for certain. Not too sure the exact Juniper species though(Prostrata or Rigida perhaps scratch ).. and definitely not false cypress...

Definately not J. procumbens which is a ground hugging juniper and tighter needle foliage. There are only a few upright forms of juniper with J. chinensis having the most cultivars. The needle doesn't look sharp enough for it to be J. ridgida. I'm sticking with a J. chinensis cultivar.

Yap, I think it's Juniperous prostrata/horizontalis. The plant doesn't grow upright. It was wired and adjusted to upright position.

Thanks bonsai buddies for all yr infos.

I asked hard or soft foliage, He said soft. I think Juniper foliage is hard.
