Cedrus brevifolia 'Kenwith' / Kenwith Cypriot cedar

Cedrus brevifolia 'Kenwith'is a miniature, upright, tree form of Cypriot cedar with irregular stubby branching and extremely short, dark-green needles. Mature plants will look like natural Bonsai specimens, making for a perfect selection for small gardens. 'Kenwith' develops into an upright, tiny little tree, growing a little more than 1 inch (2.5 cm) per year, maturing at 12 to 18 inches (30 - 45 cm) tall after 10 years.

[Bob Fincham, Coenosium Gardens] This little gem originated with Gordon Haddow, a well known Scottish conifer collector at Kenwith Castle Nursery.

'Kenwith' was one of three plants selected in 2012 for inclusion into the ACS Collectors' Conifer of the Year Program.
