Care Grows easily in a wide range of soil types; avoid poorly drained, soggy sites. Best foliage color in full sun.

Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
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.
