Description

Austrocedrus genus (Cedar). These conifers have flattish sprays of scale-like leaves. They will produce seeds which are exposed on the scales of fruits.

Characteristics

Evergreens, Conifers or Trees

Origin

Andes

Cultivation

If the conifer produces more than one leader, to maintain the general conical habit remove all but one leader. To restrict the height of the plant, the leader can be cut back.

Propagation

Seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true). Evergreen current growth cuttings in autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.

Pests, diseases or disorders

Honey fungus may be a problem; young plants are more susceptible.
