Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedar
Cedrus atlantica 'Horstmann'
|Description||A semi-dwarf selection with dense, icy blue foliage on a gracefully branching compact form. The architectural, irregular outline provides great year-round landscape interest. Add to evergreen borders for both form and foliage contrast. Blend into cold hardy islands with unique shrubs and trees. Ideal for use where space is limited. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Once established water deeply occasionally.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing; reaches 8 to 10 ft. tall, 5 to 6 ft. wide, in 10 years.|
|Care||Best in loamy well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Avoid overly wet sites. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
