Cedrus (Cedar)


Most cedars are very tall and are unsuitable for the small garden. They are not particular about soil. Plant from September to November or from March to May.

Among those that reach over 60 ft. in height and are recommended for the very large garden only are:

Cedrus atlantica glauca (blue cedar), bluish foliage.

C.  deodara (deodar), is particularly good in its golden form aurea.

More suitable for small gardens are the dwarf, slow-growing cedars:

C.  deodara pendula, takes many years to reach 6 or 7 ft., and has graceful drooping branches with grey-green needles.

C.  libani Comte de Dijon, 5 ft., pyramidal in shape.

C . l. Nana, 5 ft., a round bushy tree.
