Perfect for the discerning specialty evergreen collector, Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica glauca 'Horstmann') is a scaled-down version of the exceptional Blue Atlas Cedar. It stays small, but gives your landscape that same commanding presence, even in tiny yards.

Create a Zen Garden with one as a focal point, or use several as a cool-toned blue backdrop. Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedar can never be called "cookie-cutter".

Rather, each tree features a disparate display of multiple leaders and a mix of horizontal and erect branching. Every Horstman Blue Atlas Cedar is different, and grows into a near-effortless living sculpture with a compact form.

You'll appreciate the icy blue tones that stay true even in the hottest weather. Over time, the tree grows into a good windbreak and privacy screen.

Plant them in the ground as a Memorial Garden, or cast your eyes on them in a personal Meditation Garden. Grow a series of them in huge, modern outdoor containers for an extremely sophisticated look.

This tree tolerates coastal settings, but prefers sharply drained soil and full sun. Birds love the sheltering branches, but deer tend to pass it by.

Mix and match with other evergreens to carve out a dedicated oasis for yourself to rest and recharge. Use this exceptional semi-dwarf plant to give architectural, irregular structure and beautiful year-round color.

Order Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedar from our evergreen experts today. You'll be well pleased at the superlative quality of Nature Hills plant material.
