Juniperus chinensis 'Fortunei' / Fortune's Chinese juniper

Juniperus chinensis 'Fortunei' is an upright, columnar selection of Chinese juniper with fairly open branching and bright-green awl-shaped foliage. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 6 feet (2 m) tall and 4 feet (1.5 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 6 to 8 inches (15 - 20 cm).

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in the 1930s by an unknown American nursery. The name, first published in 1933 by I.H. Baily in The Cultivated Conifers of North America, honors plant collector Robert Fortune for, in the opinion of Gordon Haddow in The World Checklist of Conifers, no particular reason.
