Special Attributes

The Deodar Cedar, also known as Himalayan Cedar, is a large growing coniferous evergreen tree with a pyramidal form and pendulous branches that are gracefully drooping at the ends. Equally attractive are the light grayish green needles and upright-facing cones. In the United States it grows 40 to 50 feet tall in about 20 years or so with branches from the ground up. The Deodar Cedar is one of those trees that really makes a statement in the sunny landscape.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 40 to 50 feet tall and 20 to 30 feet wide, the Deodar Cedar is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or in privacy screen plantings in large landscape borders.  Excellent for use as a tall privacy screen or as an end-cap for mixed screens or an evergreen background for shrub borders. A fine addition to conifer gardens and rock gardens. Really nice near lakes and other bodies of water. Young trees can be grown in large containers but will eventually need transplanting to the landscape.

Cultural Preferences

When planted right, and in the right spot, the Deodar Cedar is very easy to grow. It grows well in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility, though is exceptionally drought tolerant when established. As with so many other conifers, constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. Good drainage is essential. Likes as much sun as you can give it. Some shade is tolerated however trees won't be as full. Exceptionally low maintenance requiring no pruning except to remove a stray or damaged branch.
