Blue Arrow Juniper

 
Blue Arrow Juniper  

My organism is called the Blue Arrow Juniper. It is very lumpy and fat at the bottom. At the top, it comes to a point. The Blue Arrow Juniper has little berry-like blue bulbs at the end of every pine-like leaf. Its color is almost like a mixture of blue, yellow, brown, and green. The Blue Arrow Juniper is part of the evergreen family.
 
The Blue Arrow Juniper feels rough, spiky, and prickly to the touch. It is about five feet wide at the bottom and six and a half feet tall. The Blue Arrow Juniper has a distinct smell. The Blue Arrow Juniper is next to a group of Veronicas. A close relative of the Blue Arrow Juniper is the Chinese Juniper. This Blue Arrow Juniper looks awkward because of the snow we got this year. It bended the branches down. That is why it is sagging so much.
