This juniper still has a ways to go, but sooner or later I have to decide how to style it. Which do you like best: Cascade, semi cascade or upright?

Semi-cascade presents the best trunk-line, but you'd really need to push the growth back to pull it off...

I also voted semi-cascade based on the photos presented; if I saw it in person and could see 360* my opinion might change.

I would also prefer an upright bunjin style in a more severe, or even slightly right leaning, position. :cool:

Upright, take off most of the left trunk, and bring the right side down to the first branch, and go from there.

Should be cut back to the last foliage and left to push new growth lower down. It is not all that great for any style at the moment.
