More Information
Botanical PronunciationSEE-drus dee-oh-DAR-uh
LoreThe name deodar translates from the original Sankrit as "timber of the gods". Deodar cedars are among the great aromatic timber woods of antiquity, considered pest resistant and therefore used to create containers to house precious but perishable.
Average Size at MaturityReaches 4 to 5 ft. tall, spreading 6 to 10 ft. wide in 10 years; prune regularly to maintain size and form.
Bloom TimeConifer; prized for foliage.
Design IdeasUse this bright blue conifer in shrub borders for an injection of carefree cool color. It's a natural for rock gardens nestled into landscape boulders. Irregular form fits nicely into woodland gardens that need relief from too much green. Spot into wild gardens among naturalistic compositions of native shrubs and prairie grasses. Low profile growth makes this creeping shrub a perfect groundcover on banks and slopes or cascading off raised planter edges and retaining walls. A truly eye-catching candidate planted in well chosen, elegant Asian containers.
