Cedrus deodara: Deodar Cedar Seeds

Magnificent, full bodied, graceful elegance. Pretty high billing for a conifer of any type, but the 'Kashmir' deodara cedar does justice to the description. 'Cashmiriana' is a fast growing upright, graceful, pendulous Himilayan Cedar. The new spring growth is slightly more blue, becoming a richer green as the season advances. These long needles lay along the sweeping, pendulous branches creating a soft, flowing form that will be a source of pride and enjoyment in any medium or large sized garden.

Zones: 7 to 9
Mature Height: 70 feet
Mature Spread: 30 to 40 feet
The Deodar Cedar is a good grower for the south and north of the Kashmir. It has a very graceful horizontal weeping habit with pendulous branches that spread. When needles first emerge they are yellowish-green, but throughout the summer they mature to blue-green. A particularly beautiful tree.
When choosing a location, keep in mind that the Deodar Cedar has a moderate growth rate. It grows up to 70 feet in height and 30 to 40 feet in spread. It can be planted in zones 7 to 9. Requires full sun and well-drained soil. Will tolerate wind, heat and drought.
