Atlas Cedar (Cedrus Atlantica) 10 seeds (#91)

Noble, majestic and impressive in form and stature, the Atlas cedar is one of the most heat and drought tolerant true cedar species. An evergreen tree native to the Atlas Mountains of extreme northwestern Africa, the tree in youth is pyramid-like with few branches but becomes a massive, spreading-branched specimen with age.
The needles emerge each spring in tufted whorls atop short nubs on the thin branches, first light green and becoming darker green. The male and female cones appear on the same tree, at different times of year. Male cones shed yellow pollen in the autumn and are finger-like in shape. The female cones, which take two years to mature, are egg-shaped and turn from blue-green to lavender-brown in color. The female cones are produced only on more mature plants.
Grow Atlas cedar in full sun in any moist, average to well-draining soil. This tree must be given ample room to grow and reach its most beautiful and fullest landscape potential. Grow it as a specimen in a spacious lawn in a park, cemetery or campus. It is no less than glorious when its silhouette is reflected in the still waters of a lake or pond.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak for 12 hours in clean warm water.
2. Sow seeds 5 mm deepin sowing mix and keep at ~+17C.
3. Lightly cover the seeded area with mulch to reduce soil compaction in sun and rain. Water shallow seed lightly and frequently until they sprout. Cedrus seeds will usually germinate in 14-60 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic. Normally will only germinate with light, GA-3 may promote germination - even in the dark.
4. Water deeper seeds slowly and deeply, but do not keep wet or they can rot. When seeds sprout, encourage deep roots by gradually reducing watering frequency and increasing the amount, to get it down deep around and below roots while letting soil surface dry between soakings
NOTE: Most seeds require warm (room temperature or higher) temperatures to germinate. When seedlings emerge, thin extras to allow full light around seedlings; some may be transplanted to larger pots or the garden. When transplanting, hold small plants by leaves to avoid damage to tender stems.
