Cedar - Deodara Cream Puff
The Himalayan Cedar Cream Puff, Cedrus deodora 'Cream Puff', is a great variegated dwarf cone shaped plant with cream colored tips. This tree is very attractive as an accent plant and can be sheared to keep it in small places if necessary.
It is a bushy form of the Golden Indian Cedar. Cream Puff must have full sun for its best color, and ample room to attain its fullest and most beautiful growth.
Deodar cedar is extremely adaptable, growing well on a wide range of soil pH and types. It will not tolerate soggy soils; prefers acid, mulched soils. Keep moist until established and protect from cold winds, especially when young. Moderate fertilization at the beginning of growth will give this tree a healthy start.
Deodar is a name in India for certain trees associated with temples. It can usually be distinguished from other Cedars because it is softer in appearance, more graceful, has longer needles (1 1/2") and a more pendulous, whip-like leader.
This Cedar Cream Puff is an easy to grow, attractive evergreen with graceful pendulous branches. It will be a standout in any landscape. Being quite rare and a great selection, it is very difficult to find!
