Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula'

Blue in more ways than one, the weeping cedar tends to bow itself or cast itself full length on the ground for its crying, thus making an interesting sprawl of needle-y branches. Those can dangle over the edges of raised beds or rock gardens or be trained over arbors and pergolas.

However, if you prefer your cedar less prostrate, you can support its trunk with a stake up to a certain height—shaping that trunk into serpentine coils if you like. You then may choose to let the branches cascade from that height for a weeping willow or waterfall effect.

With such support, the slow-growing cedar eventually can reach 20 feet in USDA zones 6-9. If it is left on the ground, that height will become length instead. Adding to its highly decorative effect are upward-pointing, tan, barrel-shaped cones.

Culture:  Atlas cedars prefer full sun and well-drained, acidic soil. Once fully established, they are drought tolerant and should be pruned in winter.
