Tall, ornamental conifers, the “true cedars” hail from the mountains of the eastern Mediterranean and western Himalayas. Since wood from cedar trees is resinous and durable, even when in contact with soil and moisture, ancient cultures utilized it for lumber to construct palaces, temples and ships. The species, including Cedrus atlantica (Atlas Cedar), C. deodara (Deodar Cedar), and C. libani (Cedar of Lebanon), grow to massive dimensions. Our production is limited to cultivars selected for landscape use, including weeping, columnar and dwarf forms. Give cedars well drained, dry soil in sunny sites.
