Quick Overview:

‘Electra Blue’ Deodar Cedar is a slow growing compact selection ideal for landscapes where a smaller sized blue conifer is desired. Typically only reaching 7-8′ within 10 years and is easily kept at a manageable size. With attractive powdery blue needles, the dense pyramidal shape can be sheared if desired. Tolerant of a wide range of soils and requiring minimal water once established.

Description

Best grown in deep, moist but well-drained, acidic loams in full sun. Drought tolerant once established. Intolerant of poorly drained wet soils. Best tolerance of the true cedars for hot and humid summers. (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
