Cedrus deodora 'Roman Candle'

Cedrus deodora 'Roman Candle' ()
 

Common Name


 

Soil

Any good garden soil
 

Aspect

Sun or partial shade
 

Height

12-15ft
 

Action and Timing

White needles in the spring. A large, beautiful, and stunningly weeping tree of great effect as its habit adds movement to a garden. The new growth on this variety is white, this really does make it look like a Roman Candle in full glorious sparkle, only this firework in the landscape lasts for many weeks before gradually turning green. A real cracker....pardon the pathetic pun.
 

Nursery Notes

Grafted plant.
 

Opinion

Absolutely fantastic spring colour to the new needle growth. After this it can look a tad tatty as the white begins to green up, however the effect in spring is worth it
