History and Origin
Slow growth conical or cylindrical shaped tree. Around 20 years, it only measures approximately 4 meters, but it can grow up to 15 to 20 meters as it becomes a mature tree. Its blue fruit ripens in spring during the first year. It grows primarily in limestone regions. This tree is the shelter and food for a rare butterfly in Canada called juniper hairstreak (Callophrys gryneus).
