Cedrus deodara ‘Gold Cascade’.
Cedrus is a genus of coniferous trees in the plant family Pinaceae. They are native to the mountains of the western Himalayas and the Mediterranean region, occurring at altitudes of 1,500–3,200m in the Himalayas and 1,000–2,200m in the Mediterranean. These large evergreen trees have needle-like leaves arranged spirally on young shoots, and in whorls on short spur-like side-shoots; ovoid cones break up to release the seeds while still attached to the tree.
Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery, Cedrus deodara ‘Gold Cascade’ has cascading branches and the foliage is yellow on top and light green on lower or inner branches. With time it slowly matures into a broad upright tree but with selective pruning it can also be maintained as a garden sized spreading specimen.
