The Columnar Blue Atlas Cedar is a tall, narrow evergreen tree with rich silver-blue needles. It has a central vertical trunk and side branches that grow upwards, instead of sweeping down, as in the ordinary Atlas cedar. It will reach 15 feet tall and be just 6 feet wide within 10 years, ultimately passing 40 feet, and still be only 25 feet wide. It is perfect for a majestic and grand specimen tree in limited spaces, and for creating bold avenues along driveways. It also makes a striking accent tree in large borders of shrubs and smaller trees.

  • Strong vertical evergreen with silver-blue needles
  • Striking erect habit with ascending side branches
  • Top-quality specimen for limited space and avenues
  • Reliable, long-lived, and drought resistant
  • Fast growing – over 12 inches a year

The Columnar Blue Atlas Cedar should be grown in full sun, on well-drained soil. Once established it is very drought tolerant, and it thrives in warmer parts of the country, including both hot and humid and hot and dry regions. It grows 12 to 15 inches a year, soon becoming a substantial tree with no effort, and it normally never suffers from pests or diseases. It can be maintained at the maximum narrowness by some simple controlled pruning as it develops.
