Cedrus Deodara Feelin’ Blue (Feelin’ Blue Cedar, Blue Deodar Cedar)
Native to the cold mountains of Kashmir, this is a dwarf strain of Cedrus Deodara – meaning it will not grow as high as its cousin the “Fountain Tree”.
The Feelin’ Blue Cedar is a slow-growing conifer, that prefers to grow outwards horizontally, rather than upwards. This makes it a good choice for shrubbery, for protecting slopes from soil erosion, or for marking property boundaries (you will probably have seen it used along the edges of shopping centre car parks, steering people towards the designated entrance/exit points). As its name implies, it has blue foliage that spreads outwards from its hanging branches.
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.
