CEDAR BLUE ATLAS HORSTMANN

Description

Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedars (Cedrus atlantica 'Horstmann') are a cultivar (hybrid) of blue atlas cedars. Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedars are a slow-growing, semi-dwarf evergreen tree with needles ranging from icy blue to sky blue. Expect your Horstmann cedar to reach 8 to 10 feet tall with a spread of 5-6 feet in 10 years. This tree is tolerant of most types of soil, including sand and clay, so long as the soil doesn't tend to stay wet or soggy for long periods. It does best with average amounts of water and is quite tolerant of dry spells. The blue Atlas cedar is quite disease resistant, but may develop root rot if planted in poorly drained, constantly wet locations.
