Cedrus atlantica

Atlas Cedar

Evergreen, cone-bearing cedar trees bear needles in tufted clusters to form a pyramidal shape. As the trees mature, they have flatter tops with large supporting trunks and limbs. In early spring or late winter, male catkins dust their surroundings with yellow pollen. Plant them where their branches have plenty of room to spread. These deep-rooted trees are drought-tolerant once established. Cedar wood is fragrant. Protect from strong winds. Tips can die back from cold temperatures or from the deodar weevil.
