Description

Cedrus genus (Cedar). Conifers are distinguished from other trees and shrubs by producing seeds which are exposed on the scales of fruits. Like other conifers they produce woody fruits and needle-like leaves. The needle-like foliage is arranged in clusters on short shoots, which develop new whorls each year. Cones are produced terminally on short shoots.

Characteristics

Evergreens, Shrubs, Conifers or Trees

Origin

Himalayas and the Mediterranean.

Cultivation

Grow in a sunny, open site in any well drained soil including chalk. 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

Propagate by seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true). Take 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.
