Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca'


Cedrus Atlantica Glauca, or Blue Atlas Cedar, is the more traditional of the two blue atlas sisters, achieving dense upright pyramidal growth (as opposed to weeping growth) to 40-60 feet tall. Like her wild sister Pendula, this conifer has silvery-blue whorl-like needles and barrel-shaped cones. A magnificent sight in the landscape backdrop when mature.
