    Regrettably not having the plant in person & without other keys to tell more (pollen cone or seed cone), I’m reluctant to confirm. You would the best judge for narrowing down which cultivar. Best you take a sample to nurseries like ‘Pike’ for a match. You could also try the experts of American Conifer Society for a confirmed ID. Yearly membership is $40.00. Best wishes to you RonFreed!

    Thanks for your help, Laura! Your links helped me look in the right direction. I have found something that I would love your opinion on. Do you think the plant I’m trying to identify might be more specifically “Blue Pacific Shore Juniper”?

    Maybe one of low growing cultivars in the juniper genus (Juniperus). Since there are no cones to help narrow down, I’m taking a guess for now; possible something in the common juniper (Juniperus communis)? Check it out and see if you have a match. Copy and paste the included link below for image of the needle leaves of the common juniper. Low growing forms include ‘Green Carpet’, “Repanda’. Best wishes!
