Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca’ – Blue Atlas Cedar displays powder-blue needles and an upright habit. While not appearing to be a dense grower, in time the habit of the tree becomes broad and tall. It will grow up to 1 foot per year, so give this tree some room in full sun. While appearing similar to Larch, Blue Atlas Cedar holds its needles all year.
Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca Pendula’– Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar has the same needle color as its upright relative, but this plant is a very strong weeper. It can be trained by staking to any height or width to create numerous dramatic effects. Training along a rail, for instance, can give a waterfall appearance. Again, full sun and good drainage will keep this plant thriving.
Cedrus deodara ‘Aurea’ – The golden form of Himalayan Cedar is a strong growing upright pyramidal tree. It belongs in full sun with good drainage and produces golden tips of new growth that fades slightly in summer. Give it room, but give it wind protection in colder climates.
Cedrus deodara ‘Pendula’ – This green-needled tree is a very graceful tree that can be highly variable in form depending upon the whims of the grower. Stake it for height and enjoy many weeping branches giving it a very graceful appearance, or let it trail along the ground and over a wall. This Himalayan Cedar needs full sun, good drainage, and protection from wind in colder climates.
