Monrovia -Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula' Serpentine
This dramatic weeping evergreen makes a special addition to any landscape. Superb specimen for minimal-care gardens. Naturally slow-growing with a sprawling horizontal habit, though often trained into an upright, serpentine form. Pendant branchlets display icy-blue needles, creating a graceful, waterfall-like effect.
Once established, water occasionally; more in extreme heat.
Best in loamy well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Avoid overly wet sites. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Train and prune as needed to maintain desired shape.
