Description

Available Spring/Summer 2018 A stiffly weeping small tree, Cedrus libani subsp atlantica 'Glauca Pendula' has lovely silvery-blue needles and a very elegant arching habit.

This tree will grow only to the height to which the leader is supported. In our arboretum we have constructed a 2.5 m tall wooden tripod and trained this plant up it and along the struts (shown in the third photo). Now, several years later each strut has a spectacular, curtain-like veil of blue-needled cedar branches hanging beneath it.

Cedrus libani subsp atlantica 'Glauca Pendula' is a very architectural weeping tree, ideal for gardens of nearly any size as the height is easily managed.

Supplied Size: 3 or 4L containers (two to three years old, 40 - 60 cm tall)


  • Position: Full sun or light, dappled shade.
  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Fully hardy.

  • Notes: Cedrus libani subsp. atlantica 'Glauca Pendula' is particularly eye-catching when planted against a dark backdrop which highlights the coloured needles.
