Your close-up seems to indicate that this juniper is going from needled foliage to also have some scale foliage.
I know of only 2 junipers where the dominant form is needles, with -as a tree gets established and more calm- has some scale. Thos are procumbens and san jose.
If indeed you get scale foliage at that tip, I would recommend looking at pictures of both and comparing to find out which looks most like it.

Lol. On some fora I have been seeing the 'Foemina' being spread around and used as "some kind of unidentified variety chinese juniper". Looking around it seems there is a nursery or two who uses this as a cultivar name. Interesting. Thx for sharing.
If however you get scale foliage, I doubt it is right. All the descriptions I find for the 'foemina' is hat it has needles only.

The foliage and the bark looks the same so I am going to presume its a Foemina for now.
Thanks for the comments and suggestions
this is not a foemina, i own one and it only grows needle foliage (very sharp needles) that it makes working on them super annoying. i still think this is a procumbens, a rather unhappy procumbens which is why i believe it has some needle foliage. Foliage on a foemina is rather more aggressive (sharp). here are some photos from my current collection.

Thanks for sharing. The foliage on my tree resembles more the foemina you linked. Its not like the scale foliage on my shimpaku and its not like the procumbens foliage I have either. It's definitely the exact same foliage as you linked.
