Quick Overview:

Cedrus deodara, know as Deodar cedar, is an evergreen conifer that is pyramidal when young, maturing to flat-topped trees with broad-spreading horizontal branching. Deodar cedar is perhaps the most pendulous of the true cedars, with drooping branchlets and branching that is gracefully drooping at the tips. Lower branches typically remain on the tree as it ages, often touching the ground. This is a medium-growing tree that typically matures to 40-50? tall in its first 25 years. Dark grayish-green needles (to 1.25? long) appear in clusters. Upright cones (to 4? long).

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.
