Low profile growth makes this creeping shrub a perfect groundcover on banks and slopes or cascading off raised planter edges and retaining walls.

Companion Plants Japanese Maple (Acer); Azalea (Azalea); Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris); Barberry (Berberis); Camellia (Camellia)
CARE
Care Grows easily in a wide range of soil types; avoid poorly drained, soggy sites. Best foliage color in full sun. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
HISTORY
Lore Named from the Greek, kedrus, its kin include the famous cedars of Lebanon. Its classification is attributed to German botanist, Christoph Trew, 1695-1769, although some Anglo-centric references indicate John Loudon, 1783-1843, the noted English horticulturist and writer. This species was named by Scots botanist, David Don, 1799-1841 and his brother, George. Native to the Himalayan Mountains, its local name is deodar. Deodar cedars were officially introduced into cultivation about 1831 although they have been grown in Chinese parks and gardens for centuries.
