Cedrus deodara ‘Feelin Blue’
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.
Cedrus deodara ‘Feelin Blue’ is one of the lowest forms of cedar and can be kept as a prostrate form which means it is perfect for ground cover for banks and slopes or the front or corner of a border. It has a striking bright blue foliage and provides an injection of colour and interest to any garden setting. Very easy to prune and keep to the size you want, one of our favourite cedars and often forgotten as a great ground cover conifer. Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery.
