In comparison to the species, ‘Blue Pacific’ is noted for having (1) better blue foliage color, (2) better ground cover form, (3) denser foliage along the branches and (4) better resistance to winter injury. Aromatic, awl-shaped, spiny-pointed, blue-green needles (to 5/8” long) appear in groups of three. Fleshy, blackish, berry-like seed cones acquire a silvery bloom at maturity.
