Shimpaku junipers have fine qualities, especially suited to bonsai culture. Tiny needles which can be pinched at the end of well ramified branches, producing a cloud like effect. Generally vigorous, they respond well to proper hard pruning. The red underbark is a beautiful warm tone that can be used to highlight the jin and shari carving.
Shimpaku junipers are in the top tier of bonsai specimens for these reasons, and more.
