Cedar of Lebanon (2 Replies)

Posted August 6, 2018 at 12:09 pm

Hi Everyone,
I am in Utah (6A) and am really wanting to plant a Cedar of Lebanon in my backyard. I have a great spot for it where it will get plenty of sun and have room to grow. I am a novice conehead and am noticing it is hard to find a nursery that sells a Cedar of Lebanon, everything I have read makes me feel it will succeed where I am located.

I am interested to hearing some of your thoughts around this tree, pros and cons and any feedback and suggestions.

Some of the other confiers I have in my yard are: Magyar Gingko, Austrian Pine, Alaskan Weeping Cedar, Blue Atlas Cedar, Cedar of Lebanon (Blue Angel), Cedar of Lebanon (Beacon Hill), Mugo Pine (Sunshine). Mugo Pine (Goldilocks), Gingko Biloba (mariken). Besides the Cedar of Lebanon the next ones I am really wanting is to get a few of the Chief Joseph Lodgepole Pine.

I have enjoyed being a part of the this organization, I have learned a lot from you all. Please let me know any suggestions or favorites of yours that I can consider.

Hi Kacey! I have Cedrus libani and it grows very successfully here, but I’m in zone 9b. The ACS says it is hardy to zone 7, but it soundsl ike you are already growing it, correct? Try Conifer Kingdom for other cultivars. ‘Green Prince’ is particularly lovely.

Hey Kacey, a couple favorites of mine are Pinus Thunbergii Ogi and Picea Abies Cranstonii Pendula. Here are the two that are in my yard. The Ogi is 5 years old and the Cranstonii is 9 years old.
