Product details

The Blue Cedar is probably the most dramatic and striking of all blue conifers.

A winner of both the First Class Certificate in 1972 and the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.

it is both quick growing and sparsely furnished when young but thickens out with time.

This is another superb subject for specimen and parkland planting where its form can be best appreciated.

Its silvery blue foliage is very attractive but if it suffers stress during the establishment phase after planting it can loose its leaves.

This is alarming for an evergreen plant but it is fairly tough and usually reflushes the following spring.

It thrives on most soils but doesn’t appreciate waterlogged ground.

It is often seen planted too close to buildings and I think this is because it is bought my many as a tiny plant from a garden centre. Be sure not to let its initial size mislead you, it needs to be situated at least twenty metres away from a building for best long term effect! As with most trees with foliage different to the normal green, it immediately draws the eye to provide marvellous contrast within a landscape.

Mature height: 20m+

Mature spread 7-12m
