The Golden Atlas Cedar is a dramatic and exciting specimen tree for any large lawn area, or as part of the background tree planting of your property. It develops into a broad tree with widely spaced sweeping branches, creating a unique profile. To add even more beauty, the young leaves are a golden yellow color, making the tree look like it is frosted with lemon icing. This easily-grown tree is hardy in all mild and hot areas of the country, and it is drought resistant too. It forms a tree 25 to 35 feet tall, with horizontal branches radiating 10 to 12 feet out from the trunk. It has no pests or diseases and grows well in any well-drained garden soil. It even makes a beautiful bonsai tree, or it can be grown in a large pot for many years. If you want something very special, and are bored with the standard blue spruce on everyone’s lawn, then the Golden Atlas Cedar is exactly what you have been looking for.

  • Dramatic specimen tree for an open lawn
  • Blue-green foliage frosted with golden yellow
  • Develops a dramatic and unique outline
  • Drought and heat resistant
  • Low maintenance and easily grown

Choose a sunny location in any soil that is not always wet, for your tree. Young trees benefit from some afternoon shade to keep the yellow needles fresh and brightly colored. Water regularly for the first season or two, and after that your tree will be drought and heat resistant. Some shelter from strong winds will prevent any damage to foliage in winter. This tree is more resistant to urban conditions than the Lebanese cedar. It requires no care to become a grand specimen, and it should not even be trimmed, so allow sufficient room for it to spread when choosing a planting spot. Trimming spoils the unique character of the tree, by preventing the branches sweeping out horizontally.
