The Shimpaku Juniper is native to Japan, the Kurile Island and the Sahalin Peninsula.
It prefers rocky, well-drained soils. In its natural range, it is most often found growing near the sea.
The foliage is needle-like on young trees and scale-like on older trees.
One of the best characteristics of Shimpaku is its hard resinous wood; ideal for advanced sculptural techniques such as jin, shari and sabamiki.
This particular Bonsai measures 15 inches tall, has a 9 inch spread and is approximately 25 years old.
