Cedrus deodora

Deodara, or Himalayan, cedar is sacred to Hindus; also known here as California Christmas Tree. This conifer is exceptional for its graceful pendulous habit and silvery gray-green needles on arching, widely spreading branches. Drought tolerant when established. Grows best in a well drained, somewhat dry soil in a sunny, sheltered location. Broadly pyramidal when young, it becomes wide-spreading and flat topped as it matures, attaining a height of 40-70 feet in 30 to 40 years.
