Grow it: Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar

Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula'


Weeping blue atlas cedar
Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca Pendula’
This tree is pliable and very easy to train (especially when young), and its drooping vertical branches give the slow-growing weeping blue Atlas cedar a unique personality. With its silvery blue evergreen needles and smooth, grey bark, it’s like having a living sculpture in the garden year-round; it can even be trained into a spiral, waterfall, espalier, arbour or wacky “What the heck is that?” shape. Drought-tolerant, this cedar adapts to most soil types but prefers moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Trained and staked, it can ultimately reach a height of 10 metres, with a spread of five metres. Shelter from cold, drying winter winds. Zone 6.
