Cedrus deodara 'Cream Puff' / Cream Puff Himalayan cedar

Cedrus deodara 'Cream Puff' is a semi-dwarf, broadly pyramidal selection of Himalayan cedar with dense branching and light, blue green foliage with white tips. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 10 feet (3 m) tall and 4.5 feet (1.5 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 8 to 12 inches (20 - 30 cm). Of the numerous white-tipped cedars in the nursery trade, 'Cream Puff' performs best in full sun — it is less prone to sun scorch once established.

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in the 1970s by William Goddard at Floravista Gardens, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Hi! I live in San Diego, CA , and am trying to locate vendors who sell Deodar Cedar “Cream Puff” in a 24” box. Local growers really don’t know about this tree let alone grow it, and neither do the other large nurseries they have referred me to. I’m’ wondering if you might have any ideas about who to contact, even perhaps in Oregon.
Thank you! Kathleen Urquhart 858-243-0444


I got mine at Garden Works on Vancouver Island. It’s a brilliant tree. I’d give them a call.
