Deodar Cedar

Cedrus deodara

A graceful tree with bluish-green needles, the deodar cedar is an exceptionally beautiful evergreen that many consider the most striking tree found in the DC. Metro area. It grows pyramidal when young, but its crown flattens as it ages, with pendulous branches flowing from its trunk.

Size and Light Requirements

Deodar cedars need full sun and typically will attain 50 feet in height in 30 to 50 years.
