Cedrus - Cedars

Mainly suitable for large gardens, Cedrus (Cedars) are magnificent evergreen trees with fabulous silhouettes, striking clusters of small needles, large and decorative cones. Generally conical when young, they develop a wide trunk and horizontal branches as they age, and grow up to form impressive specimen trees. Offering a range of colors, textures and shapes, they make a distinct and lasting statement in the landscape. They have few rivals for beauty when given enough space.
