Deodar cedar is among the world’s most elegant and stately of evergreen conifers. This western Himalayan native tree has fast growth and develops a broad, pyramidal habit. Its dense branches are covered in green to blue-green needles. The branch tips often dangle softly downward, giving the entire tree a soft and luxurious feel. With time, the trunks and branches become very picturesque, especially when viewed from under the canopy. The female cones are held upright on the upper tree branches and are large, egg-shaped and purple-green, while the smaller male cones are elongate and shed copious amounts of yellow pollen in spring.
This large tree and must have full sun and ample room to attain its fullest and most beautiful growth. Deodar cedar is extremely adaptable, growing well on a wide range of soil pH and types although it will not tolerate soggy soils.
Well-suited as specimen trees for the landscape.
