Cedrus (Cedar)

Real Cedars are tall and broad conifers from mountainous regions in the Mediterranean, where they may gain several hundred years in age. Most species have very fragrant needle like leaves arranged in clusters. Cedars have been highly valuated for their strong and very aromatic oily wood and thus many species have been become very rare in nature because of uncontrolled timber cutting. Though becoming very large in size they grow moderately and have a pyramidal crown in their juvenile stage. Older specimens form a wide crown resembling a huge umbrella. Ideal for most well drained soils in a sunny spot.
Sow flat at 15-25°C in any well drained soil in full sun. Keep soil only slightly moist.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.

Cedrus libani ssp. libani (Cedar of Lebanon)

Cedrus libani ssp. libani (Cedar of Lebanon)

18 (30)m, Cedar of Lebanon is the national emblem of Lebanon,and most likely the most majestic of all Cedar species, unfortunately probably the most endangered Cedar species as well. Nowadays found only in some 12 separate populations in Lebanon (e.g. forests of Jabal Qammoua, Jabal Al Barouk and Maaser Al Chouf) and a couple of smaller populations in the Taurus range in Syria and Turkey. Grows very moderately with a juvenile pyramidal crown forming with time a broad and flat umbrella with very thick, horizontally arranged, very long branches and clusters of evergreen, dark green, highly aromatic needles all over. Mature specimens eventually make a couple of large light brown cones. Excellent for any well drained soil in full sun. Seeds become only occasionally available as Cedar Trees produces first cones (and hence seeds) not before they have gained some 40 to 50 years in age !
