(Cedar of Lebanon)
  (Award of Garden Merit)

Family Pinaceae
Originating from Mediterranean

A sacred tree, steeped in history and holy associations - it is mentioned more than any other tree in the bible. A stately specimen for a very large garden - it is slow growing but reaches colossal proportions when mature. However it is absolutely ideal for Niwaki (garden bonsai) for a smaller plot. It has a conical shape when young, developing a flat top when mature, with black, fissured, scaly bark. This is the oldest tree in cultivation.
Grow in a sunny position in moist but well-drained soil. Will tolerate a chalky soil.
Can be drastically reduced in size with pruning.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 30m
Spread 30m
