Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca'


Buy Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedar online. Horstmann Blue Atlas Cedar is an excellent landscape specimen that is the little brother to standard Blue Atlas Cedar. It is a semi-dwarf variety that can be planted much closer to a building or foundation as they only reach heights of 8-10 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide. It features the same icey-blue foliage that makes Blue Atlas Cedar a standout in any landscape, and it works great in Southern landscapes as it is more heat and drought tolerant than Blue Spruce. It also showcases multiple leaders and lateral growing branches that give it a quite unique and unusual appearance in your garden.
