|Botanical Pronunciation||se-kwoy-a-DEN-dron gi-gan-TEE-um|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slow grower to 25 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide or wider.|
|Bloom Time||Does not flower|
|Design Ideas||A larger more lush alternative to the weeping atlas cedar with much more amenable climate tolerance. A stupendous single specimen as a focal point in front yard or back. Exceptional in conjunction with natural water features and reflecting pools. Choice selection for Japanese gardens and in a naturalistic woodland setting.|
|Light Needs||Full sun|
|Soil Needs||All-Purpose Plant Food|
|Watering Needs||Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.|
|Companion Plants||Contrast the weeping form with the swordlike foliage of Bronze New Zealand Flax (Phormium tenax 'Atropurpureum Compactum') or a grassy element such as the Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln'). A grouping of the extremely columnar Skyrocket Juniper (Juniperus virginiana 'Skyrocket') also makes a good upright statement.|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
