In a larger landscape, rely on the magnificent Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca') to deliver an imposing, formal look. This stiff evergreen becomes a sculptural accent with a simply enormous amount of character.

Add one to anchor your foundation planting at the corner of your home. Blue Atlas Cedar works amazingly well to ground an oversized portico.

If you have a blank slate...why not use them in an informal group to create a focal point in a park-like setting on a large lawn? Give them plenty of room to reach the mature height and width listed on the Plant Highlights.

Skyward-reaching erect branches are cloaked with beautiful blue-green needles. Blue Atlas Cedar grows into a tall pyramid that becomes flat-topped with age.

The steely blue needles simply glisten in the sunlight. No wonder these handsome evergreens are one of the world's most popular trees.

Add structure and year-round color to your landscape design. You'll never regret this sophisticated choice.

As a nice bonus, the close-knit branches pull double-duty as an effective windbreak and privacy screen that requires little care. Birds also love nesting in their welcoming shelter!

Once established in your soil, Blue Atlas Cedar becomes waterwise. We do recommend that you give it supplemental water in times of drought; and plant in full sun and well-drained soil.

These disease-resistant trees make a wonderful addition to large landscapes...either commercial or residential. Enjoy the redolent fragrance of the needles and textured bark in your space.

Order Blue Atlas Cedar from us today for superlative quality. We work with professional garden designers across the country...let us help you achieve the landscape you deserve.
