|Design Ideas||This golden-hued conifer will infuse the landscape with warm tones. It is perfect 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.|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Azalea (Azalea); Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris); Barberry (Berberis); Camellia (Camellia)|
|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.|
|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.|
