Fastigiata Cedar

Out of stock

The Cedar Fastigiata, Cedrus atlantica 'Fastigiata', is an upright formed evergreen conifer with blue-green needles.  It is a narrow, columnar selection with a mature width of only 10'.  With this interesting and picturesque habit, it works well as a specimen or lawn tree. 

In optimum conditions, this pyramidal tree can reach up to 40’ tall and 10' wide.  Placed in a good site, this can tree can grow up to 2 feet a year!

This cedar prefers moist, deep soils, but is tolerant of dry, sandy soils and does best in full sun.  Fastigiata is tolerant of pollution and urban conditions so makes a great tree for city parks.

It may get considerable needle burn and injury during cold winters or when sited poorly in windy locations.  Severely winter burned trees generally recover well if established.

With its excellent and strong ascending branching habit, Fastigiata is a fantastic choice when something is needed for a very narrow area!
