Cedrus Atlantica Glauca Pendula (Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar)
A superb weeping tree with long greenish-blue foliage that hang down vertically. People often comment that it has a ghostly or ethereal feel to it.
Whether you consider it spooky and saintly, the Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar’s slender branches will certainly be a talking point for visitors. Often used as specimen conifer, especially next to ponds, pools and lakes to create create shaded nooks. It should be staked upright after planting to train the branches to droop into the popular “waterfall” effect, otherwise they will grow outwards close to the ground. It grows slower and smaller than its non-weeping cousin, the Blue Atlas Cedar.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements. We often think of them being heavily covered with snow during the winter, but they can look equally as bold and impressive against a bright blue summer sky.
