Plant Name Habit Zone Rate Color Description
Cedrus atlantica 'Aurea Robusta' Broad Upright  6 Large Yellow This vigorous, Golden Atlas Cedar grows quickly into a large, pyramidal tree with open, layered branching and a straight, terminal leader. The bright-yellow, new growth softens to tones of cedar-blue where foliage is shaded in the interior of the tree. Originated in Boskoop, Holland, in 1932.
Cedrus atlantica 'Fastigiata' Narrow Upright  6 Large Blue Fantastic color and a narrow, upright form recommend this selection of Atlas Cedar. Vibrant, blue-green needles and dramatically ascending branches contribute the character and shape needed to perform as a focal point or in a grouping. The fast-growing tree gets as tall as the species, but its slender footprint requires less space.
Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca' Broad Upright  6 Large Blue The popular Blue Atlas Cedar is a dramatic, pyramidal tree with clusters of short, somewhat-stiff, frosty, silver-blue needles. Uniformly stiff, ascending main branches with spreading branchlets give the tree a full, but open, look. In old age, elegant specimens get broader and develop a flat-topped form. Tight, stubby seed cones mature in two years. 
Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula' Weeping 6 Large Blue Putty in the hands of a sculptor, the Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar boasts an extremely pendulous habit that can be staked or trained to conform to any shape. From a living waterfull to a grazing, blue, wooly mammoth, plants respond to the whimsy of their designers. Short, irregular, steely-blue needles thickly cover the swooping branches and give specimens both color and texture. Trees develop massive trunks with time. Found in France before 1890.
Cedrus atlantica 'Horstmann' Broad Upright  6 Intermediate Blue This compact German selection offers the same striking, powder-blue foliage color as the popular Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca'), but the slow-growing, intermediate-size tree maintains a smaller stature. It grows about 6-8" a year and makes an attractive, small tree with considerable presence for the smaller garden. Ascending branches covered with tight clusters of bright needles give the tree an elegant look that is at once full and open.
Cedrus atlantica 'Horstmann's Silberspitz' Broad Upright  6 Large Green/Yellow A recent introduction from Horstmann Nursery in Germany, this upright, relatively narrow form of Atlas Cedar produces creamy-white, new growth tips. These stand out against the blue-green, inner needles on older branches that fill in and give trees a stately, mature look. In fall, new growth puts on burnished-yellow tones for winter. The unusual, new cultivar makes a superior addition to the cedar lover's landscape.
Cedrus deodara 'Blue Snake' Weeping 7 Large Bluish Green This animated tree produces fascinating forms when its twisting branches are staked. The unique, serpentine-like shapes sweep out and upward, while inner branches lie close to the main stem. Growth at the base meanders along the ground and spreads out via snaking, blue tendrils. Found in Holland in 1962.
Cedrus deodara 'Gold Cone' Broad Upright  7 Large Yellow Golden-yellow, outer needles and blue-green, inner needles on the pendulous branches of this large, graceful, pyramidal selection of Himalayan Cedar produces a big, bright accent in the landscape. A relatively fast grower, 'Gold Cone' becomes a large tree, similar to the species, but with a more upright habit and a smaller footprint. Found at Wm. Goodard Nursery, Victoria, B.C.
Cedrus deodara 'Kashmir' Broad Upright  7 Large Bluish Green Improved winter hardiness and long, blue-green needles distinguish this noteworthy cultivar of Deodar Cedar. Elegantly arching, pendulous branches with softly textured foliage add strength and character to large landscapes. Propagated from a seedling at J. Franklin Styer Nursery in Pennsylvania.
Cedrus deodara 'Prostrate Beauty' Spreading 7 Intermediate Bluish Green This unique beauty combines a spreading, horizontal habit with distinctive, blue foliage.  The mid-size conifer is nearly flat when young but eventually develops a leader with age, unless pruned to keep it low. New blue-green needles keep their soft, feathery look as they mature. Found at Iseli Nursery in 1979, this form's superior qualities will define it as a classic among cedars.
Cedrus deodara 'Raywood's Prostrate Dwarf' Spreading 7 Intermediate Green This low, strongly horizontal conifer from Australia has graceful, soft-blue needles that give the open, ground-hugging plant a rich character. Unique specimens of 'Raywood's Prostrate Dwarf' can spread out along the ground, cascade down a bank or take on an asymmetrical, mounded form to complement landscape rocks. Plants respond well to selective pruning to maintain the desired form and size.
Cedrus deodara 'Snow Sprite' Broad Upright  7 Intermediate Yellow This irregularly mounding, compact conifer sends out ivory-white new growth that turns creamy-yellow. The unique, mid-size plant develops a leader with age, but stays small and compact compared to the species.  It is best grown in part shade where the bright foliage will practically "glow in the dark".
Cedrus libani 'Glauca Pendula' Weeping 6 Large Green This irregular, upright Lebanon Cedar produces a graceful, vertical form with long, pendulous branches covered with long, stiff, dark green needles. The slow-growing tree develops an impressive stature, with a large trunk, wide, spreading branches and a flat-topped crown. Occasional, random horizontal branches look like an arm or leg. Barrel-shaped cones add interest.
Cedrus libani 'Home Park' Spreading 6 Dwarf Green A rare, spreading, dwarf form of the libani group of cedars, this exciting plant has vibrant, green needles that cover gracefully arching, horizontal branches.
Cedrus libani subsp. brevifolia 'Kenwith' Broad Upright 6 Dwarf Green 'Kenwith' has a natural full-sized tree form in a tiny package. Small rich green needles are in perfect scale to the short erect branches. A slight inward curve to the baranches gives the plant some added interest. An exceptional conifer for container plantings where a miniature landscape is the goal. Selected 2012 Collector's Conifer of the Year by the American Conifer Society.
Cedrus libani var. stenocoma Broad Upright  5 Large Green From mountainous southwest Turkey, this subspecies of Cedrus libani displays better cold hardiness than other forms, making it useful for Northern climates. Like the species, the dark-green conifer changes from a pyramidal form in youth to a flat-topped, picturesque tree with stiff, horizontal branches and a massive trunk in maturity.  Attractive, broadly columnar, durable and unusual, it performs best in full sun.
