Cedrus is a genus containing just 3 species in the Pinaceae family. They are evergreen, coniferous trees native to mountainous forests in the West Himalayas and the Mediterranean, with leaves that are reduced to needles measuring between 8-60mm long. Foliage is blue-grey, the leaves are arranged on short stalks in clusters and cones are produced at the tips of short shoots. Trees grow tall, 30-40 metres high and the branches spread wide, meaning this genus has high spatial requirements and should be given plenty of room.
How to propagate Cedar
Semi-hardwood cuttings are recommended.
Propagate by seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true).
