Cedrus deodara 'Prostrate Beauty' / Prostrate Beauty Deodar cedar

Cedrus deodara 'Prostrate Beauty' is a flat, spreading selection of Himalayan cedar — unique beauty and a real eye catcher. A true Blue in color, this spreading slow grower is nearly flat when young, developing a leader with age, if not pruned. New growth is light green-Blue. Its soft feathery look and distinctive color and shape make it destined to become a classic among cedars. Typical rate of growth in most areas is 6 to 8 inches (15 - 20 cm) per year, resulting is a flattened, layered shrub 5 to 6 feet (1.5 - 2 m) wide and somewhat shorter after 10 years in the landscape.

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in 1979 by Iseli Nursery of Boring, Oregon who was also responsible for its introduction to the nursery trade.
