The Blue Atlas Cedar is the most popular blue-foliage evergreen available for warmer gardens. It grows rapidly to 15 feet within 10 years, ultimately reaching 60 feet tall and 40 feet wide, and even more in its maturity. The short needles grow in clusters along the branches, and they are a vibrant, striking blue-silver color. Younger trees have an upright, conical crown, becoming more spreading and forming a broad pyramid, as it develops. This is the perfect specimen for a large lawn, screening or an avenue. Allow enough room for the maturity of this long-lived tree. Grows well in planters for many years, and it is also a popular subject for bonsai training.

  • Spectacular lawn specimen evergreen
  • Beautiful silver-blue needles
  • Grows as much as 2 feet a year
  • Develops into majestic pyramidal tree with spreading branches
  • Easily grown in any warmer garden

Full sun is best for your Blue Atlas Cedar, which is hardy down to 0o degrees (zone 6). Plant it in any well-drained soil, acid or alkaline. It is normally pest and disease-free, safe from deer and very drought resistant once established. Allow it to develop a single central trunk when young, otherwise no special care is needed.
