    Guess away and see who can name it first.

    Irish juniper (Juniperus communis 'hibernica')
    and maybe the dwarf variety 'little Spire' in the planter?

    Have the plants been trimmed at all or is this the natural growth habit?

    I'm interested to know what plant is just in front to the left of the first columnar juniper. It almost looks like a not so common type of yew(microphylla?).

    It is not an irish Juniper and it has not been trimmed at all. This is it's natural growth habit.

    The plant to the left in the first pic is grown from a witches broom. It is a variety of Abies Pinsapo 'mexican fir'
