Plant details

One of the most beautiful cedars, with greyish-green young foliage, darkening with age, and pink-brown new shoots. Trees are conical in shape, with a narrow, pointed tip which droops elegantly, as do the ends of all shoots and branches to give a weeping appearance. In all but the very largest gardens this tree will become too big in time, so either regard it as a temporary resident to be removed when it outgrows its space after perhaps 10-15 years, or plant a smaller, slower growing conifer instead. Also sometimes known as 'Robusta'.
