One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Juniperus deppeana 'McFetter'
The blue Alligator Juniper (named for the texture of its bark) is one of the easiest cleanest blue conifers for us. Doesn't make much sense since it comes from the SW US and Mexico, arid, less humid locales. This plant, in the Gotelli Collection, is a little taller than I am and a bit wider.
