The Golden Himalayan Cedar is one of the most beautiful specimen evergreen trees in the world, and it has the great advantage of growing rapidly when young, soon becoming a handsome specimen on your lawn. It then slows down, and does not grow enormous, even when older, so it is a great choice for medium-sized gardens. It brings majestic beauty on a smaller scale. In spring the new needles are creamy-yellow, glowing and shining in the new season, and a vision of extraordinary beauty. The color gradually changes to a yellow-green, still beautiful, and then in fall to a light green that is attractive all winter. Plant this tree with plenty of room around it, as the horizontal branches, ending in weeping tips, are broad and look best when not crowded against other plants.

  • Golden foliage on a spectacular specimen tree
  • Fast-growing when young, and soon mature looking
  • Won’t grow too large for a medium-sized garden
  • Easily grown in average, well-drained soil of all types
  • Perhaps the most beautiful conifer in the world

Plant the Golden Himalayan Cedar in full sun, as even partial shade will reduce the golden effect of the foliage. It grows best in deep, well-drained soils of any kind, including alkaline soils. Once established it tolerates ordinary summer drought conditions well, and it requires no special care. Avoid locations with ocean salt-spray, or urban pollution. Pests or diseases are normally not problems, and the only pruning needed is to remove lower branches as they are overtaken by upper growth, and to prevent the development of two central stems, by removing one when a pair is seen developing.
