Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca’
A pyramidal form of shimmering silvery-blue foliage sets the Blue Atlas Cedar Tree apart, making it a landscape focal point. Its sleek silhouette and dramatic color heighten almost any area, so it’s a unique selection, full of character that gives you instant curb appeal.
It’s one of the most popular evergreen conifers available. Blue-green foliage falls elegantly from its upward-growing branches, lending incomparable color to your yard. Plus, because it’s tolerant of most soil types and drought conditions once established, it thrives on rainfall alone
taking the guesswork out of growing for you.
Plant your tree in full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight) and well-drained soil. Dig a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. There is no need to amend the soil.
After planting, add a layer of mulch to help the ground retain moisture. Water deeply after planting to settle the roots.
Watering is only necessary during dry periods, especially while it is establishing.
You can add an organic fertilizer in the spring if you want faster growth, but it is not necessary.
You can prune during the summer for shape and size, but it is not necessary for the health of the tree.
