1. I bought this conifer from a local nursery, they could not tell me what kind of conifer it is. its scaly ligh green foilage. 2. This plant is almost looks like first one but with a darker color. There are light green link in between each scale, making the scale sections more visible.

    Based on my bonsai knowledge it is probably Juniperus Chinensis ‘Shimpaku’ which is a popular variety used in bonsai. It can have a form like this easily if properly maintained and is an extremely slow grower for a Juniper. –Student at Gwinnett Technical College in Lawrenceville and employee at Randy’s Nursery.

    You’re welcome eyeman! Haha! I learned a few things about employees at garden centers. These folks are not always gardeners, nor plants crazy like me :). Nurseries that operate by plant enthusiasts are best in plants ID. But it is also where I would spend more than I intended :). Laura

    Thanks a lot laura, Bangladesh is a tropical climate country, and its very hard to find conifers here and the local nursery workers usually have very little knowledge about the species. Thanks for the time you spent on commenting, means a lot. 🙂

    I am not a conifer expert, but you might want to check out Juniperus chinensis, its cultivarrs and varieties of its hybrid Juniperus pfitzeriana. If this is grown as bonsai, the experts from a bonsai society are very knowledgeable about different conifers can help its exact ID. Best wishes!
